catarinayres’s review published on Letterboxd:
this is pure, it made me feel closer to my mother, somehow.
those frames of new york actually reminded me of my times in brussels, rather than my nyc experiences per se. I remember, so vividly, walking alone from my hostel at Place du Jeu de Balle to the train station: the buildings, the streets, the emptiness, the colors and even the people looked like those captured by Chantal.
Those firsts scenes from News From Home were so similar to what I’ve seen in Belgium, it makes me truly realize: Chantal found home in a foreign place.
