Two fawns cross the creek. One of them pauses, linked
to his mirror reflection by the tip of his tongue, parallel
worlds merge on the fault line of a folded image.
We go into the dark and the dark opens.
Boats tipped with light and moon on the water.
This video by Farid Ghanbari is a compilation of surrealistic clips from his previous films. The images have been juxtaposed in provocative ways to create a weird visual poetry.

Every thing is protected
by a grace ready for flight,
every stone and flower
every child at night.
Daylight and darkness are real, and seasons,
but everything else is a story…
