"The Salesman" wins best foreign language Oscar

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi has won the best foreign language Oscar in Los Angeles for the domestic FFF-funded drama The Salesman.

The Salesman premiered at Cannes last May, where it won best actor for Shahab Hosseini and best screenplay for Farhadi. The film follows a couple in Tehran involved in an amateur dramatic production of Arthur Miller’s The Salesman, who are forced to move apartments following an earthquake. But the flat into which they move has an unhappy history, compounded by an unwelcome intruder.
