Jeanne Dielman in LA!!!

Jeanne Dielman,

23 Quai du Commerce,

1080 Bruxelles

April 10 - April 11


A groundbreaking work of art cinema, Chantal Akerman’s sharply observed and compellingly restrained masterpiece recounts the seemingly innocuous household chores of single-mother Jeanne Dielman (Seyrig). But beneath the surface of her modest Belgian petit bourgeois behavior, recorded in real time by cinematographer Babette Mangolte, Akerman uncovers a feminist tragedy.
