Dir. Chantal Akerman. 2015, 115 mins. DCP. Chantal Akerman’s death in 2015, just as her final masterpiece No Home Movie was set to have its American premiere at the New York Film Festival, was a tremendous shock to the film world. Akerman had been making formally inventive, rigorous, and deeply intimate films since her astonishing debut Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1083 Bruxelles in 1985. Akerman’s art was at once personal and engaged with history and politics, and No Home Movie was no exception. Built around a series of conversations in person and online between the filmmaker and her mother, a Belgian Holocaust survivor, the brilliantly deceptive No Home Movie is both diaristic and avant-garde, a meditation on family relations, memory, and death in the modern world.
