Directed by Chantal Akerman | 2006

Shooting almost exclusively in an apartment in Tel Aviv, Akerman creates a film that simultaneously is and is not about Israel. Over near-abstract shots of interiors and life outside her windows, the filmmaker offers her musings on alienation, Jewish identity, and own her family history. She once noted that imprisonment is a defining theme of her work; Down There is among her most personal and affecting explorations of confinement and solitude. An Icarus Films release.
