These films, from the eighteen-part "Persian Series" (1999-2001), are among Brakhage's most colorfully sensuous, inspired in part by Persian miniature paintings and the calligraphy found in them. But as with most of Brakhage´s hand-painted films, no still or group of stills will look anything like the inspiration, or much like the film itself either. Instead, the key to them is their very lack of consistency. Small clusters of colors dance; groups of shapes congeal for a moment into solid objects, the next moment becoming transparent; shapes and colors freeze for an instant and then become consumed, even obliterated, by the next group. As in many of his later films, Brakhage tries to push cinema to a certain limit, asking, perhaps, how diverse a film can be and still be unified, and how much variety a human consciousness can contain.
