This short film documents Siamak Fallah , a visual artist and religious refugee, in his performance installation piece 'Colour Of Sleep'. In the piece, Siamak explores his bilingual dreams through experimental painting methods using sour orange trees from his birthplace Iran. The trees were originally from a sacred Baha’i site, before they were uprooted and dragged through the streets by the Iranian regime who continues to persecute Baha'is. Siamak uses sour orange trees - a symbol of religious oppression of Baha'is - from his birthplace Iran, combined with water, ochre and paper, to illustrate his dream... a dream he has not dreamt yet.
