MONIRA AL QADIRI The Craft
Pop culture, futuristic architecture, junk food, dream readings, alien abductions, geopolitics, diplomacy, war and peace....
In The Craft, Al Qadiri turns to memories of her childhood in Kuwait to tell an unlikely story. Were her diplomat parents really conspiring with aliens who flew around in a spaceship that looked like an American diner? A sense of paranoia seeps through cleverly edited VHS home movies superimposed on drawings of the aliens. Al Qadiri's questioning of reality leads us to question geopolitics, diplomacy, war and peace.
