Job and His Daughters

Job and His Daughters, 16mm, 2018

Job’s Daughters is an organization that recruits young girls to participate in acts of religious ritual and community service. The International Order of the Freemasons is a parent organization of Job’s Daughters. When I was around 14 years old I was inducted into this secret society under the conditions that I was somehow related to a Freemason and that under no condition would I share the rituals we would perform. We were required to wear white robes to display our purity and also required to wrap our bodies with a rope that outlined our breasts and reproductive organs. Years later, looking back at the time I spent in this environment and seeing the practice of performing rituals on weekly basis, the book we followed, and the history of the Freemasons, I wanted to display how strange and haunting this cult was for me and is still today.
