About The Cold Green
A documentary examining the iconoclastic life of Forough Farrokhzad and her relationship with supporters and critics alike. Iran's most controversial and influential female of Persian poetry and cinema, Farrokhzad fought patriarchal conceptions of womanhood and subservience, and in doing so made her comparatively short life one about liberation and freedom of expression. Here, film director and critic Naser Saffarian pursues his cinematic interest in Farrokhzad and delicately intertwines interviews with her family members and literary scholars to present an intimate portrait of this inspiring artist.
