Rachel Monosov at International Film Festival of Rotterdam

Rachel Monosov’s ​The Visitor will be on view at the 44th edition of the International Film Festival of Rotterdam. “One of the largest public film events in the world, IFFR actively supports independent filmmaking from around the globe and is a recognized platform in Europe for launching new films and talent.“​

The Visitor explores the timeless landscape of the Judean desert like a lost space traveller, a woman examines plants and animals. Synthetic sounds defy all logic. Through the representation of the self out of place in her own body and environment, the visitor collects information. A rootless individual hunting for her own social history.
