The Salesman

UCLA Film & Television Archive Presents “Archive Previews”

The Salesman (Forushande) (Iran/France, 2016), directed by Asghar Farhadi

While rehearsing a theater production in Tehran, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) are forced to relocate to a new apartment, a domestic dislocation that prefigures an act of violence that sends their lives careening in unimagined directions. Winner of Best Actor and Best Screenplay awards at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, The Salesman is a taut, masterful study of character, gender and social politics in modern Iran. UCLA Film & Television Archive is honored to welcome acclaimed director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) to the Billy Wilder Theater for this special preview screening.
