This title is a phonetical transcription from arabic. The video is a commission by the Arabic World Institut of Paris (Institut du Monde Arabe), for the New Permanent Collection. Photographs and wedding dresses are shown in the video, focusing on the geometrica colourful and tactile sensations of fabrics and designs for men, women and children, reminding how precious is someone that goes though a changing moment of life: circumcision, wedding, etc.
