Jamshid; a lament for a myth  

Moin Samadi - 12'

 (Islamic Republic of Iran)


Jamshid is chosen by the Creator to rule over his people. While he is granted God‟s favour and help, he manages to bring much prosperity to his people. But one day, a long hard winter is menacing to come over the land and its „deliverer‟ is a fierce dragon. As Jamshid manages once again to save his people, pride is slowly starting to take over.
