Chantal Akerman details the daily routine of a middle-aged widow (Delphine Seyrig), whose chores include making beds, cooking for her son and turning the occasional trick. Whether seen as an exacting character study or as one of cinema’s most hypnotic and complete depictions of space and time, Jeanne Dielman is an astonishing and ground-breaking film.
The screening on 23 Jan will be introducted by Professor Laura Mulvey (Birkbeck College, University of London)
