“We used to play hide-and-seek under the red sky” (2017) stemming from refugee musician Ahmed Shaqaqi’s Baghdad memories. The sky in Baghdad becomes red with the desert storms coming from the Saudi deserts after the American invasion. Red gives its name to the video not only as a symbol of war in the Middle-East, but also as a symbol of  fascism and dictatorship that is all across the globe at the moment.
