  • Forough Farrokhzad directed her first and last feature film in the 1960s, naming it THE HOUSE IS BLACK. Known across the globe as a poet of some renown, Farrokhzad stepped into the visual medium and delivered a stylistic tour de force. Illustrating the lifestyles and physical compromises experienced by leprosy sufferers, THE HOUSE IS BLACK is a harrowing trawl through the disease, and may find viewers fingers uncontrollably reaching to cover their eyes from the onscreen horror. A fantastic addition to the canon of Iranian films, this is a powerful, exemplary work.
