Global Film Series Schedule 2017

The Salesman
Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 6:30 pm
I.G. Greer Theater (Free Admission)

Academy award nominee (Best Foreign Language Film) from acclaimed Iranian director Asghar Farhadi.  After their old flat becomes damaged, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti), a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move 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.

"Iran's Best Foreign Language Oscar nominee deftly captures the universality of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" and parks it within the story of a crime and a husband's efforts to get justice."
