Fata Morgana (2013) Trailer
Trailer for Fata Morgana.
A slow panorama of a striking landscape. A middle-aged couple – many questions, few clear-cut answers. Created in Germany and Libya, Peter Schreiner’s film essay investigates the metaphoric search for solid ground, but in doing so the director is not trying to “extend a helping hand” to viewers in order to guide them to a quiet place. Instead he is encouraging them to exit the theater edified, like his characters, by the whole experience. Perhaps he is not even looking for answers, but this lends all the greater urgency to the questions.
