French, with English subtitles - 201 min

One of the singular works in cinema history, Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman, 23 Commerce Quay, 1080 Brussels, explores in excruciating detail the daily routine of a middle-aged widow, whose mundane chores are marked with a sense of mounting dread. Both serving as a deeply affecting character study and a hypnotic meditation on time, Jeanne Dielman has been dissected and analyzed for decades. Arguably the progenitor of what can now be called “slow cinema,” Akerman’s influence is continually felt in the works of numerous contemporary experimental filmmakers
