Moon Sun Flower Game

Loading...
"A true fairy tale: In 1962 the young Iranian poetess Forough Farrokhzad visited the lepers at the end of the earth to make a film about their world. Her film, "The House is Black", was to become world famous, and, by and by, change a small world too: the world of a small boy who had the good fortune to meet her. Overnight, the boy is spirited away from the leprosy colony into the midsts of pre-revolutionary Tehranian bohemia. A documentary fairy-tale that begins in a north Iranian leprosy colony and winds its way to Munich's Westend: there the Iranian poet in exile, Hossein Mansouri, goes in search of the boy and discovers a real oriental fable about his own roots and the magical power of words."--Publisher's website.

Keshtzar Haye Sepid: The White Meadows

Loading...
Rahmat the boatman navigates the increasingly brackish waters of a coastal land, collecting the heartaches and tears of its inhabitants. But he remains powerless against their misguided attempts to appease the gods and make the land green again, whether by offering a bride to the sea or forcibly "treating" the eyes of a painter who sees in different colors. Drawing firsthand on the challenges faced by Iranian artists of today, writer-director Mohammad Rasoulof's deeply atmospheric and poetical film is a gorgeous allegory of intolerance, brutality and mystified routine that resonates far beyond any one state's borders.
