Scream of liberation

This video piece uses an Arab 'cheer' ritual.

In French this is called a 'Youyou', a sound made by women mainly - to celebrates happy occasions - but also was used during the Algerian war of liberation by women as a weapon against French soldiers.
Issues of body representation are here explored by using a part of the body.
