La Chambre/Chantal Akerman

WIKI: "Chantal Akerman (born June 6, 1950) is a Belgian film director and artist. Her grand-parents and her mother were sent to Auschwitz, but only her mother came back. This is a very important factor in her personal experience and her mother's anxiety is a recurrent theme in her filmography. Renowned for a "hyperrealist" style, Akerman's work seeks to inscribe the "images between the images." Akerman's most famous film Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975) exemplifies a dedication to the "ellipses of conventional narrative cinema."
