Still from the video "Ishtar" - 1'44" - 2015
A young girl in traditional wedding attire is trying to smile but one can sense her mind is absent, amidst sounds alternating between chaos and celebration. This video is a reflection on growing uncertainties in war torn regions of the Arab and Middle-East where thousands of women were thrown overnight into slavery and humiliation. As if by tragic premonition, the goddess of femininity Ishtar, local counterpart of Venus and Aphrodite, is also the goddess of war.
