We will watch "The House Is Black" (1962) shot in an Azerbaijan leper colony by Forough Farrokhzad, the first woman in Iran to write openly about her sexual desire and widely considered the greatest Iranian poet of the 20th century. The radical humanism of her film arguably gave birth to the Iranian New Wave before she adopted the son of two lepers and died at 32.
