Blackboards. Samira Makhmalbaf. 2000.
The absurdity of mathematics, language, learning in a landscape of absurdities, where children are miles carrying contraband across the border hunched down like goats in a herd, where marriages are formed in makeshift ceremonies and are also easily broken, where old men can’t piss and young boys have lost their way, blackboards are dowry, casts, stretchers, and shelter from the falling bombs. The metaphor is the film, almost diagrammatically.
