Big week of Cinema in front of us! It begins Wednesday with the inauguration of our “discovery” series with a free projection of an Iranian film, The Silence directed by Mohsen Makhmalbaf.
”From one of Iran’s most celebrated filmmakers, comes The Silence, a hypnotic symphony of visual and aural rhythms. The Silence follows the life of Khorshid, a blind 10-year- old boy who experiences the world through sound. Living with his mother in a small village in Tajikistan, Khorshid earns money tuning musical instruments.(…) that this film is poetry taking pure cinematic form and cinema taking pure poetic form. It cannot be explained, only way it can be understood is through heart” Still Here
This is part of our new Discovery Series, it’s a free screening with donations at the door
