Writer/Director/Producer: Asghar Farhadi
A Separation is a drama that would be compelling in any country: the dissolution of a marriage. But this is set in contemporary Iran. Not the Iran you see in the news, but an Iran of middle class, apolitical citizens whose quiet lives are shattered in an instant of anger. As the marriage falls apart the film weaves a maze of intrigue and complex emotions where everyone is right and wrong. A fascinating glimpse into Iran’s’ legal system, religious hotlines, love and human weakness.
