BAMcinématek to Honor Chantal Akerman With Retrospective and 'No Home Movie' Release

BAMcinématek will pay tribute to the late Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman by screening one of the most comprehensive retrospectives of her work the U.S. has ever seen. Akerman, who passed away last October, will be the subject of “Images Between Images,” starting Friday, April 1 and running through Sunday, May 1. In addition to the month-long tribute, BAM will host the premiere theatrical release of the director’s final film, “No Home Movie” during the first two weeks of April.

“No Home Movie” is a portrait of Akerman’s relationship with her mother, Natalia, a Holocaust survivor and familiar presence in many of Akerman’s films. The film fixates on Natalia’s world inside her Brussels apartment, with only glimpses of the hustle and bustle just outside her window. In the apartment, time all but stands still. Akerman said in her own words that ‘No Home Movie’ is “a film of love, a film about loss, sometimes funny, sometimes terrible.” Other Akerman films that will screen during the retrospective include “La Captive” (2000), based on Proust’s “La Prisonnière,” and her second-to-last film “Almayer’s Folly” (2011).
