Wikileaks: Women (2016)

Video made with imagery found using scrapy, python. 

Using imagery found in the Saudi Cables from Wikileaks, this short film questions our attitudes and assumptions of women in the hijab.

As the files uploaded to Wikileaks are very poorly curated and pngs, tifs or pdfs almost never labeled to show what they contain, datascrapping was used to download and analyse over 1000 images in the database to find these images.
