showtimes and tickets

After the Taliban is routed from Afghanistan in early 2001, the Mansouri family seizes the new window of freedom by opening a restaurant called "The Poet's Corner," with an open microphone and an inviting platform for all to read poetry, perform music and tell their stories. This newfound hope proves to be fleeting as they struggle to maintain their way of life when encountering opposition from lingering factions of the Taliban. "Black Tulip" is a modern portrait of Afghanistan that captures the current plight and resilience of its people. The film was made to give voice to the voiceless people of Afghanistan by telling a story through the eyes of an everyday family from Kabul, who remain hopeful despite constant struggle and tragedy.

This film which is based on a true story about a family in Afghanistan, produced and directed by an Afghan woman under most dangerous circumstances-- in Afghanistan, is one of the best movies I had seen. This film tells the story in a trilling, beautiful and memorable way -- reflecting love, hate, resilience,lost dreams, beauty of knowledge and much more...at a time that the world needs more accurate information about the history and real people of Afghanistan who are suffering under the pressure and attacks from all sides.

I didn't know what to expect coming in, and this film blew me away! I've been desensitized by so many hollywood type movies and I found this story so refreshing. It was a window into another world and well worth watching.
