Speed Cinema Presents: The Salesman (Forushande)

March 17, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Directed by Asghar Farhadi

“Leaves the viewer tense and breathless . . . There’s not much doubt that Farhadi’s work has revolutionized New Iranian Cinema.”—Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

Director Asghar Farhadi is the master of suspenseful domestic discord, creating situations from which you can’t turn away. He has an uncanny knack for enveloping the viewer, making them emotionally invested in the unfolding narrative.

After their apartment becomes uninhabitable, a young married couple in Tehran acting in a production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, are forced to take a new place in a less than desirable neighborhood. Once relocated, a sudden act of violence linked to the previous tenant deeply affects the couple’s relationship, creating tension which tests their expectations of each other.

Winner of Best Screenplay and Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival and shortlisted for the Best Foreign Film Oscar. 2016, Iran, DCP, in Farsi with English subtitles, 125 minutes. Rated PG-13.
