From the Mother Tongue

A short film for 8989 project by where Siamak Fallah uses sour orange trees – a symbol of religious oppression of Bahais – from his birthplace Iran, combined with water, ochre and paper, to illustrate his dream… a dream he has not dreamt yet. The trees were originally from a sacred Bahai site, before they were uprooted and dragged through the streets:

I truly enjoyed the film and liked the idea behind of it: The illustration of his dream.

Wish him the best in reaching to his dream.


Nothing is sacred the Mother Tongue

"nothing is sacred "in so "The trees were originally from a sacred Bahai site " does not make sense here, I guess!

Universal Religion!???

by Immortal Guard on

If their religion is so universal then how come their "Mahfel" is such a reclusive club?

And how come the Iranian Bahai's on average are more religious than Iranian Muslims?


Bahai's are crazy

It's a crazy religion that makes as much sense as all other religions. We're all better off without any of them.
