Luis López Carrasco - 23 mins | 2017 Spain

An alien is a foreigner, an outcast and, in popular culture, an inhabitant from another planet. Tesa Arranz, a key figure in the 1980s Madrid scene and the lead singer of the Zombies, has painted over 700 portraits of outer-space creatures. Confronting the singer’s paintings with the memories of her youth, her poems and diaries, Aliens depicts the emotional landscape, in Spanish history, where happiness, nightmarish experimentations and alienation walked hand in hand.
