Summary
  • News from home: Letters from Akerman's mother are read over a series of elegantly composed shorts of 1976 New York, where our filmmaker and protagonist has relocated. This unforgettable time capsule of the city is also a gorgeous meditation on urban alienation and personal and familial disconnection
  • Hotel Monterey: A cheap Manhattan hotel glows with mystery and unexpected beauty, its corridors, elevators, rooms, windows and occasional occupants framed like Edward Hopper tableaux
  • La chambre: The furniture and clutter of one small apartment room becomes the subject of a moving still life in this experimental short film, the first film the director made in New York
