A documentary fiction inspired on the first accounts of the natural and ethnographic explorations in America by colonizers, missionaries, and scientists. Shot in the Tropical Greenhouse of Lille, France, the film uses both the architecture and the plants of this enclosed botanic garden as narrative supports for an initiatory journey. Led by the voice-over of an explorer, the film explores the notion of exoticism, evokes the violent origins of the New World and the endurance of the imagery they engendered.
