SCREENING

Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

Friday, Apr 29 at 6:30 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Chantal Akerman. 1975, 201 mins. 35mm. With Delphine Seyrig. Akerman’s singular avant-garde epic—which surveys with unprecedented detail the mundane daily routine of a domestic mother and prostitute—must be seen on a big screen to gain its full impact. Working with the great cinematographer Babette Mangolte, herself an experimental filmmaker, Akerman creates a portrait of an enigmatic woman’s inner life by focusing on her chores (cooking, cleaning, letter-writing) and then watches as her perfectly structured life gradually unravels. Jeanne Dielman is undoubtedly one of the greatest films ever made.
