THE HOUSE IS BLACK
The House is Black (Persian: تسا هایس هناخ , Khaneh siah ast) is an
acclaimed Iranian documentary short film directed by Forough
Farrokhzad. The film is a look at life and suffering in the Behkadeh
Raji leper colony and focuses on the human condition and the beauty of
creation. During the shooting she became attached to a child of two
lepers, whom she later adopted. It has since been recognized as a
landmark in Iranian film.

"The House is Black paved the way for the Iranian New Wave." -
Reviewer Eric Henderson

THE SCHOOL BLOWN AWAY BY THE WIND
Written, directed and edited by Mohsen Makhmalbaf, one of Iran's
leading filmmakers, The School Blown Away by the Wind (1996) is set in
the school for nomad children seen in Makhmalbaf's Gabbeh. In this
brief, humanist tale, an old man enters the improvised classroom to
revisit memories of his youth.
