Revealability

See online : Veil comment by Jack Straw

The veil is a "visible statement of separation and of difference."
- Jack Straw, UK ex-foreign secretary, 2006.

After reading about Straw’s comment, although not a practising Muslim, I decided to wear the niqab in London for 1 week in November, 2006.

This short film (2:55) aims to ferment the borders of tolerance. I want to use identity - veil - to agitate generic notions of cultural ‘authenticity’ or ‘assimilation’, especially when political correctness risks becoming another static doctrine.
