SYNOPSIS

While puzzling over aerial photographs from early 20th century Iraq and Egypt, a filmmaker finds herself increasingly unsettled by images that want to share their violent secrets. Moving between the recent past and the distant past, the film explores horror — both real and imagined. The second part of a project that uses archive photographs to explore a history of bombing. 

PROGRAM NOTE

Trouble addresses the history of Egypt and Iraq during British colonial rule in the early 20th century through archived photographs and records from the British repository. By blending elements of early horror film sound and invoking myths like the curse of mummies in Egypt, the director brings forth a fusion of essay-like forms with genre characteristics. In this work, the director traces the records and evokes the hidden dark history beneath. The film reveals the violence that lingers in the past and the present, enveloping people in its grip.
