Laura Huertas Millán: Toward a decolonized ethnography

Voyage en la terre autrement dite Laura Huertas Millan

Films index A to Z

Journey to a Land Otherwise Known

Over images of the equatorial greenhouse at the Jardin des plantes in Lille, France, excerpts from the writings of scientists, conquistadors and missionaries lead to an analysis of the genesis of colonialist narratives: the “discovery” of America, the “New World,” the “savage,” “first contact.” The miniature faux jungle creates an atmosphere of pastiche and fantasy, deconstructing colonialist adventure narratives and the very concept of exoticism.

Presented by Cinéma Moderne, MOMENTA I Biennale de l'image and 24 Images
