Movie Info

Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad takes an intimate look inside a leprosy colony in Tebriz, Iran in this renowned documentary. With stories from these forgotten people accented by poetic voiceover from Farrokhzad, the film digs deep into the heart of hopelessness within the human spirit. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The House is Black

Rating: 4 stars Arthouse rating: 4 stars The short documentary "the house is black is available on YouTube, and I highly encourage a watch. This touched on a disease I honestly never heard of, it's a disease that distorts and morphs the human body. This film didn't push information on this disease by telling sad stories, or giving statistics. It never asked for pity, it just showed the people who have to endure this day in day out. I can't imagine one giving this a poor rating, this could touch the most sadistic of people, brilliant

http://youtu.be/YRLCC5Uy1TQ a magnificent film and only about 20 mins long, in 2 pts on youtube. it's a documentary made at a leper colony in azerbaijan by a persian poet in 1962. huge influence on then emerging iranian film community, among others. a lot of people 'want to see' this so here u go
