Near Death Experiences with Leni Riefenstahl

lily riefenstahl murillo

FARAFRA OASIS IN the Western Desert of Egypt. A local restaurateur at war with an eccentric local sculptor -- an age-old bolo feud between Bedouin families. When Claire, a Frenchwoman with a tortured history of her own, arrives from the West with her own ideas about the future of the oasis, the balance of power in town goes off kilter. The characters, torn between history and desire, find themselves on the perilous tightrope between prosperity and destruction.
