Iran Oscar-winning film ‘The Salesman’ to Rescreen Malaysia
Art and Experience: Iranian Oscar-winning film ‘The Salesman’ by Asghar Farhadi is to be rescreened in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Malaysia.
A multiplex cinema operator and the leading cinema online in Malaysia, Golden Screen Cinemas, is set to release the film on July 27 in the southeastern Asian country.
A few months back, double Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi’s film was featured in KL’s TVG cinema.
Farhadi’s film won the award for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th edition of the Academy Awards .
This was the second time that Farhadi won an Oscar. In 2012, he became the first Iranian to win the prestigious award for his film ‘A Separation’, which also grabbed the Best Foreign Language award.
‘The Salesman’ tells the story of a young couple named Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) who move into a new flat in the center of Tehran. But an incident linked to the previous tenant dramatically changes their life.
