Sevdaliza - Shahmaran

Emmanuel Adjei Short film - 2018 - 7 min.

After the singer has manifested herself in a vision, one man breaks free from a group of ship-pulling slaves and pushes on alone in this musical desert fairy-tale. His destination is an enigmatic fata morgana.

A few dozen men that satisfy the stereotypical appearance of Afro-American gang members jointly pull, as if they were slaves, a giant luxury yacht (or spaceship?) along through the desert. A beacon leads a man who has broken loose to a mysterious structure where a crystal-laden Sevdaliza is awaiting him as the goddess of the underworld, before they are both engulfed.
