"The Mirror of the Soul: The
Forough Farrokhzad Trilogy"
Directed by Nasser Saffarian
Contemporary Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad became a
legend in her own time for her innovative and controversial writings. In
this extensive, three-part documentary, Farrokhzad's life, work, and soul
are laid bare. Director Nasser Saffarian deftly combines interviews with
family members and peers with footage of Farrokhzad shot by Bernardo
Bertolucci. Saffarian digs deep into her personal and professional life to
uncover new information about this outspoken artist. Includes The Green
Cold, a revealing look at her private world, The Mirror of the Soul,
an exploration of her controversial, sometimes erotic poetry, and Summit
of the Wave, an overview of her theater and film work, especially her
powerful documentary The House Is Black.
