Chantal Akerman’s final work epitomizes the late filmmaker’s intuitive sense of cinematic form, and reaffirms her inextricable relationship with her mother Natalia (Nelly). Edited from over 40 hours of footage captured during the last period of Nelly’s life, No Home Movie observes a life confined indoors, and the conversations that take place between a daughter and her fading mother. Interspersed with images of indeterminate locales, Akerman’s ultra-personal film beautifully explores ideas of history, distance, memory and intimacy.
