That most humanist

Iranian cinema

..

also the most poetic

..

was birthed by the most humanist

..

& poetic

..

of films

..

The House Is Black

..

A film set

..

in a Leper colony

..

A hard watch?

..

How far the fathom

..

of our high vaunted

..

sympathies?

..

Written & directed

..

by the poet  Forough Farrokhzad

..

The woman I imagine

..

writing, with one hand

..

in the earth

..

Her feet

..

in the ocean

..

The wind in her hair

..

& God in her sights

..
