The birth of the Iranian new Wave
Recently I read about Farrokhzad's amazing short documentary 'The House is Black' which is meant to have inspired Kiarostami and many other Iranian new wave directors. Somehow it's free to watch on youtube and it immediately draws you in. It's a film about Lepers in Iran in 1962. It was shot by the poet Farrokhzad in 12 days - and is her only film.
