Going Up the Stairs: A Portrait of an Unlikely Iranian Artist
The first sight of Akram, an elderly Iranian woman, clad in a black chador, provides little clue that her internal world is literally bursting with riotous, glorious color. This gorgeous film showcases the talent of this self-trained Iranian painter as she prepares to exhibit the paintings made upstairs in her home to the public for the first time.
