Presenting her final film in the Concorso internazionale at the 68th Locarno Film Festival, Chantal Akerman said: "This is first of all a film about my mother, my mother who is no longer here. About this woman who arrived in Belgium in 1938, fleeing Poland, atrocities and pogroms. We only see this woman in her apartment. An apartment in Brussels. A film about the changing world that my mother cannot see."

The first film by Chantal Akerman I ever saw was News From Home (1977), which connects streetscapes in New York City with letters from her mother. After watching No Home Movie (2015) in Locarno in 2015, to me, these two films mysteriously connected with each other. But to be honest, all of her films speak to me. Somehow, they go to a place beyond words, a place where things and meanings turn into something really interesting. Like in her silent short film La chambre (1972). I hope you get a chance to see it, too.
