Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

Directed by Chantal Akerman

Chantal Akerman’s remarkable epic of everyday life topped the prestigious Sight and Sound 2022 list to be voted the Greatest Film of All Time in this once-a-decade poll. This International Women’s Day screening is a rare opportunity to see the film on the big screen.

Here Akerman presents three days in the life of a widow who lives with her teenage son, and who prostitutes herself at home in order to make ends meet.
