The Cube presents a tribute to Chantal Akerman, the legendary radical filmmaker and pioneer of modern feminist cinema who sadly died in autumn 2015.

We’re screening two movies separated by 40 years - Akerman’s second feature film, the celebrated Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles and her last No Home Movie, released in the year of her death.

Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles 

Over the course of three Days Jeanne Dielman follows a single mother’s (played by the great French Actress Delphine Seyrig) highly regimented schedule of cooking, cleaning, shopping and part time prostitution. Akerman uses little of the compression and editing of familiar mainstream cinema and much of the central character’s routine plays out in real time – a potato takes as long to peel on screen as it does in real life. At more than three hours long Jeanne Dielman, often cited as one of the greatest films ever made, is an experience that the viewer never forgets.

Before and after the films there will be Akerman-related extras in the bar, including schnitzels and structural film
