- Director: Moza Almatrooshi
- Duration: 35′
Almatrooshi carries out an investigation of the daily activities in local Sharah dessert spots. By centering desserts in the work, she problematizes sweeteners as a guise for other flavors. Sugar has historical connotations with enslaved labor, colonial enterprising and class signifiers, as well as a demonized health hazard and a source of “sinful” temptation & indulgence.
