The House is Black
Forugh Farrokhzad, 1963, 20’

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