Fata Morgana 1971
80 mins Federal Republic of Germany Director. Werner Herzog
Partly mystical, partly absurd, this early film by Werner Herzog evokes the chimerical visions of a desert mirage, re-framing and making strange different documentary images of life and decay in the Sahara. Film historian Lotte Eisener reads a Mayan creation myth and unlikely musical choices further twist and confuse our sense of place.
