Chantal Akerman's acclaimed "News From Home", followed by a q&a with the filmmaker.Described in the Village Voice as "one of the most unheralded portraits of the city,"
News From Home is as much a symphony of urban geometric abstraction as it is a poetic
diaspora tale. Inspired by the letters she received from her mother while living in New York, Akerman returned to the city after an absence and filmed its streets with her Pentax camera. From the eternal city Akerman reads her mother's letters, conjuring a sense of distant voices and still lives.
