Claire Atherton is a film editor, born in 1963 in San Francisco and trained at the École Louis Lumière in Paris. She was interested in sound from an early age and also worked as a director of photography, but it was in editing that she found her way. In 1984 she edited "Letters Home", a film by Chantal Akerman with Delphine and Coralie Seyrig. This work gave rise to a shared complicity and sensitivity with Akerman that was emphasised in the following years in various documentaries, fiction films and installations. Atherton and Akerman worked together for more than 30 years, until the director's last film, "No Home Movie", and her last installation, "Now". Atherton is currently responsible for the conception and spatialisation of Akerman's installations, presented in exhibitions around the world. In 2023, Atherton curated "Facing the Image", an exhibition of Chantal Akerman's work at La Virreina Centre de la Image in Barcelona. In addition, Atherton works as an editor with a wide range of filmmakers and artists, including Eric Baudelaire in his films and installations and, more recently, Wang Bing.
