The House Is Black(خانه سیاه است)

✭ ✭ ✭ ✭

Iran · 1963
Director Forugh Farrokhzad
Starring Forugh Farrokhzad, Ebrahim Golestan, Hossein Mansouri
Genre Documentary

The only film directed by trailblazing feminist Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad finds unexpected grace where few would think to look: a leper colony whose inhabitants live, worship, learn, play, and celebrate in a self-contained community cut off from the rest of the world. Farrokhzad creates a profoundly empathetic portrait of those cast off by society.
