Editorial Reviews

""Radiantly Sensuous." —Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"Breathtaking. Visually Indulging." —John Anderson, Newsday

"A flip-book of gorgeous, lyrical images." —Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner

"Funny and profound. " —Brian Miller, Seattle Weekly

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.

Nadereh, the beautiful young protégée of the instrument maker for whom Khorshid works, acts as his eyes, fetching him every day at the bus stop and leading him through the streets to his destination. Sometimes on the way, a conversation or melody attracts Khorshid’s attention and he loses himself in the compelling harmonies of the city and everyday life.

About to lose his job and his home, Khorshid creates a world where he can be happy; where hypnotic sounds and the music of the world shows him how to experience life. "
