The Other Land is a voyage through a new territory and its culture.  It questions the idea of “otherness” as a fundamental category of human thought by exploring the point of view of a newcomer, of an immigrant who ventures into the center of the Empire. Using surreal imagery and vibrant colors, The Other Land takes the viewer into a world of cultural criticism, subversion and a proposition for a new America.
