Fatamorgana, dir. Salomé Lamas, Portugal / France / Lebanon 2018, 123 min., Portuguese, Esperanto, English, Bahasa, Arabic, Russian, French and Turkish with English subtitles

Created over four years by Portuguese artist-director Salomé Lamas, Fatamorgana is a work with many facets and iterations: a theatre work, two publications, a sound installation – and this film, in which a lone woman finds herself interacting with an array of historical figures after closing time in a Beirut wax museum. 

Fatamorgana is both a political parody and a speculative comedy in which historical and contemporary personalities narrate post-war history and geopolitics through a web of references and citations. 

Blending and clashing multiple languages and sources, the film is a multidimensional space: at once an experiment in truth and a fiction that facilitates the collision of multiple fragments, facts and stories.
