1977 / 85min / DCP

DIRECTOR: CHANTAL AKERMAN

Twenty-six years old and living in New York City, away from her native Belgium and her mother, Akerman (with DP Babette Mangolte) filmed this diary/essay/poem in subway stations and on street corners, to eventually be paired with her recitals of her mother’s fretful letters. For many, Akerman’s towering non-fiction work, and one of the greatest portraits of a city ever put on film.
