For those who've never heard of her, Chantal Akerman was primarily an experimental filmmaker with notable work in the 70s and 80s.  Her films made a big impression on me when I first saw them.  The article states the cause of death is unknown as of right now...

Night and Day is definitely a favorite of mine.

I had the pleasure to work with the original DoP Caroline Champetier AFC on her film 'Tout une Nuit' (Night and Day in English) for grading a television version. I never met Chantal Akerman, she was about  my age, but when I saw her films I always had the feeling that she made the films I would have made if I would have gone in that direction. Strange but true.

Chantal Akerman in the Seventies is the collection that really turned me on to her work.  Check it out.
