In times of doubt or fear many go back to believing in spiritual or super powers to feel safe. Yousef Iskandar thinks of the people who were taught that the divine powers are against their existence and their fantasies are evil. How is it possible to break this spell? What are the rituals needed to heal? This video installation is a mix of images and sounds that belong to the same culture but are restricted from mixing or coexisting in one space.
