VIS AND RAMIN

Title:VIS AND RAMIN

Artist/s:BARAN

SYNOPSIS/ABOUT

Vis and Ramin is one of the most famous narratives of pre-Islamic Iran, having endured through the past 2000 years as a tale of forbidden love, rebellion, rejection of social mores and the challenging of inherited political structures. It is often described as a Persian Romeo and Juliet, and believed to be an inspiration for Tristan and Iseult, although the proto-feminism of the central character brings to mind Greek figures Medea and Antigone. The subversive and feminist implications of the story have resulted in its being banned in Iran since the revolution.
