View Journey to a Land Otherwise Known during the Films by Laura Huertas Millán event.

Shot entirely within the Tropical Greenhouse in Lille, Journey to a Land Otherwise Known uses Jean-Pierre Secq's architecture, the greenery of the botanical garden, and costumes and masks inspired by Brazilian modernism as visual accompaniment for (and ironic contrast to) texts by colonizers, missionaries and scientists recording their first impressions of the New World, underlining the falsity, projections, and exoticization inherent in these accounts.
