How does one say queen in Islam from Sarah Naqvi on Vimeo.

“In collaboration with Sophie Soobramanien and Hibotep Video 2020”

“The film, titled How does one say ‘queen’ in Islam invokes formative childhood memories in a surreal surrender of self to unrecognised forces of time and space. I begin with decisive women who have moulded my own surroundings and memories but, more broadly, I am concerned with how women have acquired agency and control tactically, by working against social hierarchies and, personally, I revisit those times when, during my childhood, women mould, change, even police, society. I imagine the archetypical ‘auntie next door’ whose business is everyone else’s, and the role she plays in the lives around her which is amplified through a larger context. Although her power is marginal, multiplied it becomes very real.”

“Nous passons le confinement pour la deuxième fois. C’est frustrant de ne pas pouvoir travailler au maximum mais j’aime le silence et la sérénité́ surtout à Paris. Le temps reste étrange. Pendant le premier, j’ai tenu mon journal mais cette fois-ci, je ne pourrais pas le tenir tous les jours. Néanmoins je vais l’essayer. La prise de vue a été faite par ma fenêtre juste avant le deuxième confinement.

Le confinement le 30 oct 2020”

“Saint Terre

When we walk, we naturally go to the fields and woods: what would become of us, if we walked only in a garden or a mall?

Henry David Thoreau

The current campaign to stop the building of a train line — known as High Speed 2 or HS2 — through ancient English woodland, to connect cities that are already connected by train lines, reminds me of the destruction of woodland by developers who built on the beach next to Walden Pond in Concord Massachusetts. This was where Henry David Thoreau lived for a while in a hut he built himself. I grew up hearing about this story. A legal case was brought against the developers and failed, was appealed and won. The developers were obliged to remove the buildings and restore the habitat as far as possible to its original ‘natural beauty’. Judge Cutter who wrote the decision was my grandfather.

This time the government is behind the building of the unnecessary tain line. Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, Middlesex. John E. NICKOLS et al.

Manuela Morgaine, OCCHIO Grotte naturelle du Circeo, Italie., 2003 Still from the film CAV CANEM Manuela Morgaine & The Crown Letter

CAVE CANEM — Beware of the dog —  this inscription can be found at the entrance to the ancient residences of Pompeii. In Italy OCCHIO, literally EYE indicates an imminent danger from which you must protect yourself. First day of the second confinement in Paris, in an epidemic time out of control, mixed with the terror of knives at the throats of the innocent, the impression that the Plague threatens our humanity. This Open Eye remains a refuge and the guarantor of our resistance.”
