In The Craft, Al Qadiri turns to memories of her childhood in Kuwait to tell an unlikely story. Were her diplomat parents really conspiring with aliens who flew around in a spaceship that looked like an American diner? A sense of paranoia seeps through cleverly edited VHS home movies superimposed drawings of the aliens. Al Qadiri's questioning of reality leads us to question geopolitics, diplomacy, war and peace.
