The fetishism of the burka is a cultural erection to the sexual repression enforced by theocratic governments. It makes a strong, political appearance in contemporary society: In the West, when a woman exercises her freedom to wear the burka, and in the East, when she decides not to wear it. A garment that was the cultural dress of the Arabian nomads has become an emphatic symbol of cultural resistance to religion, by way of religion.
This film explores the cultural practice of arranged marriages, sex and taboo in ancient Middle Eastern custom through modern Western metaphors of food and fetishism.
