Bababaghi, or the “Garden of Father”, is a leper colony in the Northwest of Iran where to this day lepers and their families live in seclusion. A play recited by their children depicts the unseen life of lepers and their agony.
The film tries to break the stigma and fear of the audience about leprosy. Unlike our perceptions, lepers are now cured and have healthy children.
This film was made with the help of fearless film students from Tabriz. It became the base for many charity events, bringing understanding and financial help for the younger generation.
Bababaghi is where we learn the biggest lesson of life: HOPE.
