The House Is Black
Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad's documentary bravely delves into the world of people suffering from leprosy. Farrokhzad composed the poetic narration for her highly stylized and moving film, which depicts the realities of living with the disease, from daily routines to physical challenges and societal stigma. Extras include an interview with poet Pooran Farrokhzad (Forough's sister) and two short films by Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf.
