  • Forugh Farrokhzad (1935 - 1967), is considered one of the most daring, revolutionary and a great Iranian woman-modernist poet and filmmaker. Half a century ago, Farrokhzad made a landmark, award-winning documentary film, and symbolically called it The House Is Black. After many years, it is still relevant, beautiful, and intensely moving. The film, revives the injustices to the people of a society long oppressed by its own administrative rulers as well as Western governments. The film, like her stunning poetry, stretches the boundaries of hope, love, freedom and humanity, although, ironically, The House Is Still Black.

She made the experience of being a woman caught in a corrupt and patriarchal society a central issue of her poetry, and fighting for women's rights at a time when all odds were against her, long before the feminist movement came along. This project is dedicated to her memory, as she lives in our hearts, and remains with us through the brilliance of her work and her voice: "It is only the voice that lives on."

FORUGH FARROKHZAD: A JOURNEY ALONG THE LINE OF TIME is a lyrical portrayal of the tumultuous life and works of a renowned poet, filmmaker, actor and painter Forugh Farrokhzad through dramatic readings, archival footages, photos, paintings, letters, manuscripts, interviews with noted scholars, critics, poets, artists, and friends. In addition, Farrokhzad's poems are visually explored and interpreted through a tapestry of images that in comparable ways depict the emotional anguish of Farrokhzad's poetic universe and controversial artistic life. Her life was her poetry and her poetry her life.
