Update: a second preview has been provided to us by Cinea and Foundation Chantal Akerman. Find it and the original trailer below.

Needless to say we’re excited the Fondation Chantal Akerman, an initiative launched by family members after her death in 2015, have completed work on a 2K restoration of Toute une nuit with color-grading overseen by DP Caroline Champetier.

God willing a U.S. release looms shortly.
