Visual artist Margreet Kramer’s camera focuses, often literally, on daily rituals and their meaning. Themes such as the masses versus the individual and human vulnerability play a defining role in her work.

The film SYMBOLS OF LUCK shows us symbols of luck from various cultures. For the Armenian people, the pomegranate is an important symbol of luck. Throwing rice is a symbol of love and happiness in both the East and the West.

It is possible to have the name of an individual who has passed away projected onto the big screen.
