Rue Mallet-Stevens

A call to save the Brussels film library in the form of an allegorical impromptu. Night falls on Rue Mallet-Stevens to the tune of a sad song: a crossover between a couple in the light of a car's headlights and the woman who gets out.


“Commissioned for the centenary of the famous French architect and designer Robert Mallet-Stevens and shot on the street that bears his name in Paris' 16th arrondissement, Rue Mallet-Stevens depicts a mysterious, nocturnal scene of romance (featuring Akerman and her partner, the cellist Sonia Wieder-Atherton) unfolding before and inside one of the street's modernist constructions.”
