Dir. Chantal Akerman. 2015, 115 mins. DCP. Chantal Akerman’s death in 2015 was a tremendous shock to the film world, and it occurred just as her final masterpiece No Home Movie was set to have its American premiere at the New York Film Festival. Akerman had been making formally inventive, rigorous, and deeply intimate films since her astonishing 1975 debut Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles. Like all of Akerman’s art, No Home Movie is at once personal and engaged with history and politics. Built around a series of conversations in person and online between the filmmaker and her mother, a Belgian Holocaust survivor, No Home Movie is both diaristic and avant-garde, a meditation on family relations, memory, and death in the modern world.
