The Mall, SW1Y 5AH London, United Kingdom
The House is Black is the only known film directed by Forough Farrokhzad (1935 – 1967), one of Iran’s greatest 20th Century Poets who tragically died aged just 32.

The film is widely regarded as one of the greatest Iranian documentaries of all time and depicts, with vivid humanity, an isolated community of lepers living in Tabriz, northwestern Iran. This documentary is sound-tracked by segments of one of Farrokhzad’s poems, read by the author herself. During the screening, an English translation of this poem will be read aloud.

This rare screening of the film will be accompanied by readings of Farrokhzad’s poetry and a discussion of her legacy in Iranian cinema, culture and society. Panellists and speakers will include Elhum Shakerifar (producer, A Syrian Love Story, Even When I Fall, Almost Heaven, curator London Film Festival MENA programme, Shubbak Film Festival), Narguess Farzad (Senior Fellow in Persian, SOAS), and Vali Mahlouji (curator, critic and founder of founder of Archaeology of the Final Decade). Hosted by Jo Duncombe.
