Films by Eric de Kuyper presented in New York

This April, Spectacle is pleased to present the first ever New York City retrospective of the films of Eric de Kuyper. Perhaps best known for co-writing Chantal Akerman’s JE, TU, IL, ELLE; LA CAPTIVE and DEMAIN ON DEMENAGE, the Flemish-Belgian critic and semiologist has directed several films of his own, from 1982’s CASTA DIVA to 2015’s MY LIFE AS AN ACTOR. Predominately preoccupied with homosexuality, film theory, and its modes of expression, de Kuyper’s oeuvre – as captured in this four film survey – is at once academic and affecting, eminently referential and utterly his own.
