Babette Mangolte and the New York Avant-Garde: Chantal Akerman, News From Home

Chantal Akerman, News From Home

Director: Chantal Akerman

US, 1976. 85 min

One of the most beautiful portraits of New York City in contemporary film history, News From Home is at once a sensitive and melancholic reflection on a feeling of being physically and emotionally distant from home. A strange beauty of the decrepit city with its neon lit corner shops, graffiti adorned subway cars, and run-down streets contrasts with the intimate and personal soundtrack of Akerman reading letters her mother had sent her from Belgium while the director lived in New York in the early seventies. Following the structuralist film tradition, a clear structure and long takes dominate the scene as space and time become the main characters.
