The Migration of Djinn

In 2017 I set out to document the culture of djinn in Morocco. I traveled through the country to connect with brotherhoods, to find out about magic and witchcraft and to learn about the invisible world of djinn. 

My new research is focussing on the Migration of these supernatural creatures and I would like to know about YOUR STORY and your experience with possession, magic (sihr) or anything else you have heard or witnessed. 

Send me your story via Postcard to: Btihal Remli, P.O. Box 270303, 50509 Cologne, Germany

And let’s talk about djinn!

Your personal information will be kept confidential! I am looking forward to hearing from you <3 

Khamsa ala Khamis, 

P.S.: Please share this call with your friends and network!

P.P.S.: And if you don't feel like sending a card, send me a mail!
