Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, dir. Salomé Lamas, Portugal 2013, 23 min.

This programme consists of three early works from Salomé Lamas, addressing themes of ruins and remains, nature, and how humans as physical bodies leave a trace on it. 

Spanning from 2012 to 2014, the short works included as part of the programme evoke Lamas’ later works – exploring time, dystopia, abstraction and representation in a dense, multilayered way.

Encounters with Landscape3x, dir. Salomé Lamas, Portugal 2012, 29 min.
Shot on São Miguel, the largest island of the Azores, Encounters with Landscape (3X) is divided into a prologue and three acts.

Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, dir. Salomé Lamas, Portugal 2013, 23 min.
The Theatre of the World (1570) is thought to be the world’s first modern atlas. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum may be considered a film exploration, a sensorial journey, a vertiginous history, but definitely an adventure story. ‘When I look at the sea for long, I lose interest on what happens on land’, says the shaman leading character from Salomé Lamas’s 2013 work.

Le Boudin, dir. Salomé Lamas, Germany / Portugal 2014, 16 min.
‘None of the people who were asked about me had seen me.’ Le Boudin documents the encounter of the young Elias Geissler with the testimony of Nuno Fialho, who at the age of sixteen was forced to enlist in the French Foreign Legion. ‘I didn’t enlist. They enlisted me.’
