With All Due Respect
video, comb, faces and an eastern girl
To my body, to injustice, and to those who do not come close. A movement to liberate my hair strands from the chain of the (Islamic or Eastern) cover/veil. With the participation of 12 volunteers both men and women, each combed his or her hair for a moment on exhibition, to remove a burden off my shoulders that the (other) does not understand. Waheeda appears, a shot depicting her back, her hair without cover. This comes after difficult attempts to remove what my body refuses.
Note: To my family, this is my life, with all due respect.
Elke Uitentuis and Waheeda Mallulah
An animation workshop was initiated by Waheeda and Elke for the children of Shatana. Ten children participated; the group made a short animation video of a boy and a monster.
