THE BLACK TULIP                  120 MIN

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 and tell their stories.
This newfound hope proves to be fleeting as they
struggle to maintain their lifestyle when encountering
very real threats from lingering factions of the
Taliban. 'Black Tulip' is a modern portrait of
Afghanistan that captures the current plight and
resilience of its people. Cole decided to make the
film in hopes of giving voice to the voiceless people
of her home country by telling a story through the
eyes of an everyday Afghan family who remains
hopeful despite constant struggle and tragedy.
