ABOUT THE FILMS

 

A SEPARATION, 2011, Sony Pictures Classics, 123 min. Dir. Asghar Farhadi.  

In this wrenching family drama, the dissolution of an upper-middle class marriage reveals sexual, class and religious fault lines in contemporary Iran. When Simin (Leila Hatami) asks her husband Nader (Peyman Moaadi) to emigrate in search of better opportunities for their daughter, the man refuses, insisting that they stay with his invalid father. The couple separate and Nader hires Razieh to tend to his dad, but the arrival of this poor, devout and pregnant woman in the household brings serious complications. Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film. In Persian with English subtitles.

FORMAT: DCP


THE SALESMAN, 2016, Amazon Studios, 124 min. Dir. Asghar Farhadi.  

Married performers Emad (Shahab Hosseini, a Best Actor winner at Cannes) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) are starring in a production of Death of a Salesman when they are forced to evacuate their building. They wind up in a prostitute’s old apartment, where Rana is attacked; as his wife begins to unravel, Emad is determined to find the culprit and wreak revenge. Writer-director Farhadi masterfully ratchets up the tension as emotions boil over and this domestic drama reaches its powerful climax. Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film. In Persian and English with English subtitles.

FORMAT: DCP
