Sweeping scenes of New York City contrasted to the letters from the director's mother in Brussels.
Letters from Chantal Akerman’s mother are read over a series of elegantly composed shots of 1976 New York, where our (unseen) filmmaker and protagonist has relocated. Akerman’s unforgettable time capsule of the city is also a gorgeous meditation on urban alienation and personal and familial disconnection.
FR/BE/DE, 1977, 85 min., Dir. Chantal Akerman
This film is screened in association with Projection Series #13: Suspended Agency, An Installation by Peter Wareing.
