Asghar Farhadi’s New Film ‘Everybody Knows’ Shoots in Spain
Art and Experience: New film by Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi ‘Everybody Knows’ has just started shooting in Spain, starring Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Ricardo Darin.
The film is the latest work by the Oscar-winning Iranian director of ‘A Separation’ and ‘The Salesman’.
The 10 million Euros flick is structured as a co-production between Morena Films from Spain and Paris-based Memento Films Production.
“The film follows the journey of Carolina as she travels with her family from Buenos Aires to her hometown in Spain for a celebration. Meant to be a brief visit, the trip is disturbed by unforeseen events that will completely change the lives of Carolina and her family,” a brief synopsis for ‘Everybody Knows’ read.
Prior to grabbing a foreign-language film Oscar, ‘The Salesman’ scooped two awards at Cannes for best script for Farhadi and best actor for Shahab Hossein.
In 2012, Farhadi’s “A Separation’ gained the first foreign-language film Oscar for Iran.
‘Everybody Knows’ enjoys topnotch crew members, including Jose-Luis Alcaine, a cinematographer who has worked with Spain powerhouse directors Carlos Saura, Bigas Luna and Pedro Almodovar as well as Sonia Grande, the costume designer of Woody Allen’s ‘Midnight in Paris’.
