And By The Night (2017 | 11 minutes | COLOR | SILENT)

After a period of no revelations, Surah al-Duha was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, stating that God had neither forsaken nor forgotten him. And to be patient. The film is also about my abortion.

When It Is Still (2018 | 10 minutes | COLOR | SILENT)
A response film to And By The Night. An enactment of transmutation, of the animation of the previously inanimate, the dead, the unborn. Also, a rebirth.
