The Salesman
 The Salesman
This Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Film is an intimate and suspenseful drama from writer/director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Past). Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are acting together in an amateur production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. When their flat becomes damaged, they are forced to move hurriedly into a new apartment. However, once relocated, a sudden eruption of violence linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple’s life, creating a simmering tension between husband and wife. A master at exposing domestic discord through his multi-layered screenplays, Farhadi’s slow-burning, visceral drama explores the psychology of vengeance and a relationship put under strain while continuing to explore the condition of women in Iran and the male psyche. Winner of Best Actor (Hosseini) and Best Screenplay (Farhadi) at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. In Persian with subtitles. (125 mins)

"By the film’s shattering end, you’ll feel the spirit of Arthur Miller, one of the great dramatists of the 20th century, reaching across the transom to touch one of the great dramatists of the 21st." – Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly

"With The Salesman, Farhadi opens a window into his own society that offers a universal view of the emotional rivalries within the human heart. Neither America nor Iran could ask any more of an artist." – Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail

Hundreds of thousands of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame –and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could. Subtitled. (80 mins)

"[A] splendidly graceful and quietly magical documentary." – Joe Leydon, Variety

"Director Ceyda Torun was born in Istanbul and lived there as a young girl, leaving the city with her family at age 11 to live in Jordan and later New York City, but it’s abundantly clear her heart has never left her birthplace. Kedi is a valentine to her childhood home." – Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle
