Jan Decorte is best known as a theatre maker, although he did spend a number of dedicated early years in the film industry. He appeared in two films by Chantal Akerman, Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975) and Toute une nuit (1982). Above all, in only a few years he directed three films considered milestones in Belgian cinema. These films have unfortunately disappeared from the centre of public attention. For this reason Avila took the initiative to digitise Hedda Gabler and Pierre.
Discover on Avila the digitised versions of Hedda Gabler and Pierre together with his television production Gombrowicz: Incidents, Adventures.
