Set in an empty factory, Sealed Lips is a story told through the eyes of Shahrzad from a Thousand and One Nights. This Shahrzad is now old and crippled, a witness to the injustice meted
out to contemporary Middle Eastern women; she no longer is the heroine she used to be.
* This video was initially created as a 9 channel video installation in 2005. In 2012 it was re-edited into a single channel narrative video with the addition of narration.
