Event Details

Saturday, April 11, 2020
8:30 p.m.
4070 Vilas Hall
A simple premise: Over footage of New York City, where she lived at the time, Akerman reads letters sent by her mother from Brussels. These sound and image tracks begin to compete, as her mother’s letters grow impatient and the bustle of the city takes over. Like no film until her last, No Home Movie (2015), this affecting experimental documentary explores the in-jokes, quarrels and devotion between Akerman and her mother Natalia, who survived the Holocaust.
