Directed by award-winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) and winner of Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars, The Salesman stars Iranian actors Taraneh Alidoosti (About Elly / Beautiful City), Shahab Hosseini (A Separation / About Elly) and Babak Karimi (A Separation / The Past).

Amateur actors Emad and Rana are rehearsing for the opening night of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman when they are forced to leave their collapsing house and move into a new apartment. However, a case of mistaken identity related to the previous tenant causes a violent incident which threatens to destroy their relationship. The Salesman is a characteristically taut drama exploring the power of pride, guilt and shame.
