A journey into the labyrinthine memories of a narrator witnessing the spectacular rise and fall of drug traffickers in the Colombian Amazon. Walking through the woods and the ruins of a mansion (a replica of the huge house from the American television show Dynasty), our narrator will soon become the protagonist of his own mind-blowing story.

A story of travel without words on the Amazon River, crossing a landscape populated by abandoned modernist buildings, ruins or memories of a utopia of the past engulfed by nature. Aequador, documentary and science fiction, a country both fictional and real, evokes the remains of certain progressive policies of the twentieth century in the jungles of Latin America and their cohabitation with the present.

Filmed in the tropical greenhouse of the Botanical Garden in Lille (France), Journey To A Land Otherwise Known is based on stories of European colonial travel, revolving around the myth of the "discovery" of America. Starting out as the satire of a "first contact" movie, the film formalises a surreal ethnography of the evil called "New World."
