From the East Dirigida por Chantal Akerman

D’EST is in many ways much like an exhibition of stunning photographs or perhaps a meditative and somber Jacques Tati film; the scenes Akerman captures are at times so perfectly choreographed that its hard to believe they are not planned and orchestrated. Maybe this is just another of Akerman’s talents—the ability to compartmentalize the world into images both haunting and touching in equal measure.
