A film that has been analyzed and argued over since it was first released in 1975, Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles continues to spur debate nearly 50 years later. In 2022, the film made a shocking rise to the top spot in Sight and Sound's 2022 critics poll, marking the first time a film by a female director had earned the distinction. A truly singular work in the history of film, Akerman's cinematic experiment is an exacting and meticulously detailed look at the daily chores and routine of a lonely widowed housewife raising her teenage son.
Tickets for the film, part of the SCAD Cinema Circle series, are free for SCAD Card holders, $5 for students, military, and seniors, and $8 for the general public. For more information, email email@example.com.
Sight and Sound Shakeups: Shifting the Canon
Since 1952, the British Film Institute's decennial tradition of asking influential international critics and scholars to name the greatest films of all time has become a defining bellwether of critical opinion on cinema. This year's once-in-a-decade poll had a record number of participating respondents, and the resulting list featured some of the biggest breakthroughs and changes in its history, several of which are highlighted in this winter's SCAD Cinema Circle series, Sight and Sound Shakeups: Shifting the Canon.
