News From Home
Chantal Akerman, Belgium
1977, 85 minutes
French with English subtitles

“Akerman’s study of an American locale…combines her trademark static set-ups and tracking shots-in this case of New York streets-with Akerman’s monotonous voice-over reading letters from her mother in Belgium. It is a portrait of New York unlike any other; at once intimate and detached, at times frustrating yet endlessly and compulsively watchable.” –Rose Capp, Senses of Cinema
