“IN AN ALIEN LAND” is a lyrical visual analogy, a poetic journey of a mysterious woman crossing seas. Abstract sequences are woven together revealing two parallel stories through a diptych. The split screen reveals two distinct places displayed side by side: a tropical serene landscape and an American metropolis which is eventually filled with political tension. With each segment of the film, we are shown different perspectives of place and time. Associations arise and dissipate over again.
The film is a collaboration between filmmaker and artist Angela Christlieb based in Vienna and the New York artist, filmmaker, cinematographer Maria Niro.
