The House Is Black

The House Is Black ★★★★★

"On this screen will appear an image of ugliness... a vision of pain no caring human being should ignore.To wipe out this ugliness and to relieve the victims... is the motive of this film and the hope of its makers."

... and the statement has been spoken. Farrokhzad was a stunning poetess that emptied her heart and soul to create a contrasting mosaic of Iran. God's creation and the ugliness of the unnatural colliding with philosophical wisdom. I just spent 22 minutes with her and I already miss her so terribly.

May we meet in Heaven if God allows it, Farrokhzad.
