Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1977

Chantal Akerman’s minimalist masterpiece juxtaposes transfixing long take shots of 1970s New York City (where she lived from 1971-73) with readings of letters sent to her from her mother in Belgium. The contrast between the mundane familiarity of these domestic reports—family gossip, a mother’s fretting, imploring pleas to write more—and the bleakly beautiful, alien cityscapes produces a poignant reflection on distance, dislocation, and detachment.
