Chantal Akerman, D’Est
110 minutes

Following the demolition of the Berlin Wall, Chantal Akerman captures the reality and mutation of former Soviet territories, shot from summer through winter in a series of travelling shots alternating with a static camera. From East Germany to Moscow, passing through Poland, Lithuania, and the Ukraine, she records the bodies and faces of the anonymous masses, their expressions unreadable, either walking or simply waiting for who knows what. She films buildings, landscapes, snow, nightfall, and offers a mass of visual and aural impressions that constitute a bewitching, impressionistic poem.

Éric Baudelaire: To Do With

Chantal Akerman (1950–2015) is considered to be one of the most important directors of her generation. The author of almost fifty films, she is best known for her pioneering Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975), which earned her a central place in the world of avant-garde cinema. From 2013 to 2015, London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts held a complete retrospective of her films. Her final release No Home Movie was premiered at the 2015 New York Film Festival.
