Maya Constantine  

Maya Constantine is a filmmaker whose works include films in German, French, Belgian, English, and Austrian, encompassing a transnational European film moment of the seventies and eighties. Constantine and famed Belgian director Chantal Akerman collaborated twice throughout their careers—first on ANNA’S MEETINGS (1978), which won Best Film at the Chicago International Film Festival the same year, and then on SEVEN WOMEN, SEVEN SINS (1986), a survey of women’s cinema with seven short film contributions by seven female directors which constituted a feature length anthology. This work made significant rounds on the international festival circuit, making appearances at the Montreal Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Tokyo Video Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and American Film Institute Festival. Constantine (also credited as Maya Faber-Jansen) was married to actor-singer Eddie Constantine from 1979 until his death in 1993. They shared the screen together in TANGO THROUGH GERMANY (1981), her only acting credit. (03/19)
