I was at the Pordenone Film Festival when the sad news came through that we had lost this talented filmmaker. Unfortunately, outside London, it has been difficult to view her films. The last time we had a feature locally was (I believe) when the Leeds International Film Festival screened her early masterpiece Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975). There has been a major retrospective at the ICA in London. Among the organisers were Joanna Hogg and Adam Roberts who have also written an excellent obituary for the Guardian.
I hope that now at least we will see one of her major works in Leeds. The ICA are screening La folie Almayer (2011) as a tribute on October 22nd.
