Filmmaker Chantal Akerman presents A Family in Brussels, a fictional stream-of-consciousness text encompassing multiple subjectivities and laced with autobiographical references. This is the first English-language publication of the work, which Akerman wrote and first performed as a monologue in Paris and Brussels. The accompanying recording documents the theatrical reading that took place at the Dia Center for the Arts, New York, in October 2001. The listener can hear Akerman's singular voice as she muses on familial relations, communication, closeness, and distance.
