About The Color Of Paradise

Academy Award®-nominee Majid Majidi (Children of Heaven, Best Foreign Language Film, 1998) explores the world of a gifted blind boy at the mercy of his father's crippling sense of shame in THE COLOR OF PARADISE. Mohammad is an energetic 8-year-old boy who is much like the other children in his small, Iranian village except in one regard, he is blind. But Mohammad doesn't let his lack of sight hinder him, indeed, his heightened remaining senses make him even more receptive to the world around him. Young Mohammad's optimism, however, is not shared by his widowed father, a bitter man who sees the boy's condition as nothing but a liability, especially as it pertains to his desire to marry the village beauty.
