Observation of group interaction and social rituals are the starting points for Nashashibi, who primarily uses 16mm film.
She is concerned with portraying the psychological atmosphere of locations and detecting subconcious projections. To do this she films scenes from reality, often filtered through the visual language of primitivism.
