Filmworks: April 14: The Salesman (2016)
Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film, “The Salesman,” an Iranian thriller directed by Asghar Farhadi, presents the dramatic story of Emad and Rana, a couple acting in a theatrical production of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.” Farhadi subtly recreates issues from the play in the lives of Emad and Rana. The film opens as the couple is forced to evacuate their apartment when the foundation begins to collapse. In their new home they find themselves living with the past left behind by the previous tenant. Tensions run high between Emad and Rana, as they struggle to face the reality of events that will drastically change their lives forever. Starring Taraneh Alidoosti, Shahab Hosseini and Babak Karimi.
