Dawn of the Cold Season: A Video Installation

2 mins 55 secs


Dawn of the Cold Season is Sussan Deyhim's video installation, inspired by Forough Farrokhzad's poem Let us Believe in the Beginning of the Cold Season, published after her death in 1967.

The poem is considered one of Forough Farrokhzad's, deepest existential poems about deterioration of youth and life source. Its ending surprises us as she hopes for the frozen nature to irrigate the soil for new beginnings.


This video is one part of Sussan Deyhim's multi-media stage production The House is Black, and is also part of her installation Dawn of the Cold Season.
