the laughter of dead women

the subject of/in writing...2012-13

Bazgar, Amna, Shaheen, Begum and an unnamed girl were condemned to death by the local jirga in Kohistan, NW Pakistan for singing and watching a man dance at a wedding. They were murdered by 50 local men, shot or had their throats cut on 30.05.2012. My images are remediated screen captures from the moments of celebration that condemned them to death. Their laughter echoes in the fragment of film.
