Alienor Vallet (France) – Stranger, 2018, 5:00
Surrounded by street children and trucks parked at a service station, a strange man with masked head waits desperately to be given a ride. During his crossing of Argentine pampas at a rock fan trucker’s side, the stranger will remember his border crossing and snippets of his exile.
The stranger is an allegorical fable about the quest of identity revealing the condemnation to the wandering of the outsider, the migrant.
Born in Paris, Aliénor Vallet is the artistic director of Artvidéo Lab where she develops video works between experimental film, videodance, video art, essay, documentary and video installations and collaborations with multidisciplinary artists. She is the curator of the festival Les Irrécupérables.
