Printemps des Poètes 12-28 mars 22

The 24th Printemps des Poètes takes place from March 12 to 28 2022 on the theme of the ephemeral. You can't hold anything in your hand and convince yourself that you have it forever. It will inevitably leak, evaporate and sink. You open your hand and you find nothing, nothing. At fourteen, I understood that. Since then, I want to be like this thing in the hand, elusive, volatile and belonging to no one. Golshifteh Farahani, godmother of the 24th spring.
