ifilm would like to extend very best wishes to Asghar Farhadi on his birth anniversary, the great Iranian filmmaker who has won two Oscars for his slow-burn drama thrillers ‘A Separation’ and ‘The Salesman’.
The Iranian Oscar-winner Asghar Farhadi has amazed international audiences with the likes of ‘About Elly’, ‘A Separation', ‘The Salesman’ and ‘Everybody Knows’.
His movies work as slow-burn drama thrillers with incredible natural acting and storytelling and highlight ethical issues at a crossroads of social class, gender, and religion in modern Iran.
‘A Separation’ (2011) and ‘The Salesman’ (2016) have grabbed the Academy Award for the Best International Feature Film.
When ‘The Salesman’ won the foreign language Oscar, Farhadi declined to attend the event in protest against Trump’s travel ban.
Here are some reactions on social media to the director’s birthday:
