Mars, Oman

  • Belgium
Audio Tracks 

An old Bedouin riding his camel can’t believe his eyes: a woman dressed in a big, compact armour and a bizarre helmet is studying an insignificant rock. Astronauts in the desert of Oman... Or is it Mars?
Bedouins, spaceships, desertships, two young Omani girls passionate about space and a lost director reflecting about life in this Universe and the relation between nomadism, exploration, colonialism and freedom.
