News from Home with Chantal Akerman


Screening followed by a conversation with Chantal Akerman

1977, 85 mins. Tableau and tracking shots of New York City, in all its1970s squalor, are juxtaposed with letters from Akerman’s mother back home. An exquisite, deceptively simple film about a young artist’s desire for independence from the eternal pull of maternal ties.

Free with Museum admission.
