EN - Aïlien Reyns traveled to Beijing, China, and asked people to post videos about 家, the character for 'home', 'family', 'a place you belong’, ... Back in Brussels, she invited Fleur Khani to watch this collection of videos and respond by writing a voice-over about home from her Western perspective. For the Record offers a contemporary insight into the lives of people in a metropolis and researches the different forms of proximity.

NL - Aan de hand van homemade videomateriaal uit Beijing, verzameld door Aïlien Reyns, gecombineerd met een autobiografische tekst en voice over, in co-realisatie met Fleur Khani, werpt For the Record licht op de mogelijkheid van intimiteit in de grootstad. Wanneer zijn we thuis? Wat of wie staat ons in de weg? For the Record is een urban rhapsody.
