An unfurnished room, a chair. All around, half-light. The 'no man's land' of the title is neutral ground on which Paulo de Figueiredo, a mercenary in his sixties, agrees to talk about his life. But it is also a time still too recent and poorly documented, and it is also his preferred terrain. This film offers a sublime portrayal of the cruelties and paradoxes of power, of the revolutions that bring it down only to erect it again in new bureaucratic forms.
Followed by a Q&A with director Salomé Lamas.
No Man's Land, dir. Salomé Lamas, Portugal 2012, 72 mins
