Ostrannenie is a video-exploration of a territory and of the language belonging to it. It traces a history of imaginary lands from the times when the Earth rested on elephants’ backs to the current moment of Google Maps and glossy stock footage. The map of the world in the video becomes a field where the history of geographical discoveries is intertwined with the histories of the human imagination, with the camera’s eye and the gaps in language.
