Je Tu Il Elle (I, You, He, She), Saute Ma Ville and Jeanne Dielman will be screened in November at the Museum of Modern Art in the 13th annual edition of To Save and Project, curated by Josh Siegel and Dave Kehr.

Josh wrote me: "One thing too often overlooked, and well worth mentioning, is the humour in Chantal's films. This carried over into her life, and I will always cherish the laughter we shared over many meals."

"Next month we will be showing the Belgian Cinematheque Royale's new restorations of Jeanne Dielman, Je Tu Il Elle, and Saute Ma Ville in To Save and Project: The 13th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation. It pains me that Chantal will not be there."
