The Stranger

A masked man waits desperately to be given a ride. As he travels across the Argentine pampas at the side of a trucker who is a fan of rock music, the stranger recalls his crossing of the border and fragments of his time in exile. ‘The Stranger’ is an allegorical fable about the quest for identity which reveals the wandering life to which the outsider and the migrant are condemned.


Born in Paris, Aliénor Vallet is the artistic director of Artvidéo Lab, where she works with experimental film, videodance, video art, essay, documentary and video installations and collaborations with multidisciplinary artists. She is the Curator of the festival Les Irrécupérables.
