One of cinema's most innovative figures, Chantal Akerman passed away in tragic circumstances in 2015. Her last film, No Home Movie, is her most intimate and personal work: a record of her relationship with her mother over the course of the latter's last year of life.
“Sublime” – Cineuropa”
An intimate self-reflection… a tender, haunting film.” – Los Angeles Times
Through webcam chats, conversations at the kitchen table and shots of lonely landscapes, Akerman constructs a touching, melancholy portrait of her mother, a Holocaust survivor, and also of her own impending grief.
In documenting some of their last conversations, No Home Movie is above all a film about love – specifically, the love shared by two women, unbound by physical distance and mortality.
