World-renowned Iranian poet Forough Forrokhzad directs this powerful documentary about the inhabitants of a leper colony in Tabriz, Iran. "The House is Black" presents its subjects with humanity and dignity, although the realities of the disease may be uncomfortable for some viewers to watch. The stirring narration includes quotes from the Old Testament, the Koran, and Forrokhzad's own poetry. This compilation also features two short films from prominent Iranian New Wave director Mohsen Makhmalbaf.
