Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

Dir. Chantal Akerman
With Delphine Seyrig, Jan Decorte, Henri Storck
1975, 225min, DCP

 

Three days in the life of a Belgian single mother: in near-real time, we watch as the title character peels potatoes, runs errands, and entertains the occasional gentleman caller—all leading up to one of cinema’s most startling denouements. Chantal Akerman’s slow-burn epic is nothing less than “the first masterpiece of the feminine in the history of the cinema” (The New York Times).

 
Semiotics of the Kitchen

Dir. Martha Rosler
1975, 6min

 

Martha Rosler stages a feminist revolt in the kitchen in this savagely parodic anti-cooking instructional.
