Annelid’s film documents how colonialism in the UAE reproduces imperial violence to human and non-human communities. The audio is a British Missionary hymn extracted from a national archive. It dissects archival networks in the UAE that move through old channels of colonial power. Whether between institutions or national borders, the film makes evident how colonialism sets precarious conditions within communities that flow between the margins. As an archival turn, Annelid uses film as a means to reveal the labor of maintaining the archive and others marginalized by the power of the archive.
