Say I Am You is a poem by Rumi. The musical score, "Eternity and a Day" is from the movie, Aggelopoulos.
Rumi's poems elegantly and consistently touch our inner being and inspire us to go beyond our limitations towards the Divine.
A note on the music: This entire video was constructed in silence-only the poem and the images were put together without my knowing what music would be the right one. The music is so important to the interpretation of these poems. Rather than reading them, the music is my voice. When I 'laid' this beautiful piece of music over the video it fit perfectly. Few edits were made to accomodate the images to fit the music. They seem to be made for each other.
