Trust Study #1

Shobun Baile US, 2020, 15', DCP

​Against the backdrop of a 1960s Pakistani tourist guide, on-screen text reveals a silent conversation with a worker in the informal money transfer system called "hawala." Though hawala bolsters the South Asian remittance economies, it gained attention in the 21st century as a possible terrorist financing mechanism. Trust Study #1 explores hawala's dual life through an intimate engagement with its networks and their methods.
