AboutAn Alien Cartography presents four incomplete âworks in progress' films that are to form part of Luciano Zubillaga's forthcoming feature length work, At the Beginning of the Great Utopia.
The incomplete works include: an internal monologue of âthe dreamer', played by Hanna Schygulla; a film of three unnamed characters wandering through the ruins of a fictional nation, and a memorial to a former generation of adolescent revolutionaries, intellectuals and artists, who gradually merge into a parallel, more refined universe.
An Alien Cartography allows each viewer to wander through four films, gradually completing the unfinished work from the raw cinematic ingredients that Zubillaga has created.
