Images of Jumana Manna, A Magical Substance Flows Into Me

  • In a desolate desert environment, various detritus like an abandoned wagon and wooden pallets are scattered. There are no signs of life except one small green shrub and a scrappy dog.
  • A light-skinned man with a long, white beard and glasses is dressed in clothes resembling those of the Catholic clergy. A man prepares an altar behind him.
  • A street is shown at either dawn or dusk, creating a moody environment. There is only one car on the road and the sky is clouded.
  • An older light-skinned woman with gray hair, visible from the shoulders up, lays on a muted oriental rug.
