Chantal Akerman’s- Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

Tonight EV pays tribute to recently departed pioneer feminist/lesbian filmmaker Belgian filmmaker Chantel Akerman (1950-2015) with a screening of her epic first feature film, Jeanne Dielman. At almost 3 hours and meticulously detailed, this film has a sense of impending doom, the daily routine of a middle-aged widow (Delphine Seyrig) whose chores include making the beds, cooking dinner for her son, and turning the occasional trick. In its enormous spareness, Akerman’s minimalist film encompasses an entire world. Whether seen as an exacting character study or one of cinema’s most hypnotic and complete depictions of space and time, Jeanne Dielman is an astonishing, compelling movie experiment, one that has been analyzed and argued over for decades.
