    THE FILM "Babel / Letter to my Friends who Stayed in Belgium" narrtes the day-to-day existence of a filmmaker wandering through his city (Brussels) and who has a notion to follow in the footsteps of dramatist Antonin Artaud and visit the Tarahumara people of Mexico.

    This is a film about intimacy and friendship. Written in the first person, it places Boris and Brussels in the center of the universe, here represented by the crazy, vertiginous, endless spiral of the biblical Tower. It is Boris's diary and self-portrait. He plays himself on screen (as do the cast of a hundred who also allowed themselves to be "Babelized")

    THE BOOK reproduces the narration and some of the dialogues, five new texts ( Juliette Archard, Mario Brena, Serge Daney, Messaline Raverdy, Boris van der Avoort ) and many color illustrations (documents, film frames, drawings, manuscripts).

    THE POSTER follows along, in time and space, the filmmakers's itinerary through the film.

    THE BOX contains the entire film on three DVDs, the 160-page book, and the poster.
