Screening of "The Salesman" by Asghar Farhadi Past

Sunday, Jan 22, 2017 - Silver Spring, MD, United States

This year’s festival, copresented in Washington with the National Gallery of Art and the AFI Silver Theatre, presents a selection of new films and a tribute to the late Abbas Kiarostami. This festival is cocurated by Tom Vick of the Freer|Sackler; Carter Long of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Marian Luntz of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. It is cosponsored by the ILEX Foundation.

From Asghar Farhadi, director of the acclaimed A Separation, comes this “finely cut gem of neorealist suspense” (Owen Gleiberman, Variety). Shahab Hosseini won the best actor award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival for his performance as Emad, who is first seen fleeing a collapsing apartment building with his wife, Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti). When an intruder attacks Rana in their new home, Emad turns amateur detective in an attempt to find the assailant and soothe his wife’s addled nerves. Farhadi’s screenplay, which also won an award at Cannes, cleverly weaves its plot around Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman as the on-screen couple stars in an amateur production of the play. Farhadi’s masterly direction draws exquisite tension out of a relationship on the edge of coming apart. (Dir.: Asghar Farhadi, Iran/France, 2016, 125 min., DCP, Persian and French with English subtitles)
