Silent House is a personal film that explores pre-and-post-Revolutionary Iran through a traditional, Tehran-based family living in an old house that someday belonged to the fourth wife of Reza Shah (the Shah of Iran 1925-1941). The film weaves together a rich tapestry of social and political themes by charting the changes experienced by one upper-middle-class Iranian family following the 1979 revolution until the present time through a highly personal narration of two filmmakers, siblings. With the house itself as a silent witness, the family’s story becomes a mirror for society and the family’s house a metaphor for Iran.
