Art and Experience: The guardian and Variety wrote about Asghar Farhadi, the Oscar winner director of our country.
The guardian wrote in a News: The celebrated Iranian director Asghar Farhadi has begun shooting his next film in Tehran about how societal change can make people more violent.
Forushande, a drama about unstable relationships, will mark the seventh feature project for Farhadi, whose film A Separation won the Oscar for best foreign language film in 2012.
Forushande took the film-maker back to Tehran, where the terse drama of A Separation also played out. Like his best-known film, the contemporary-set project will once again weave Iranian social, political and moral themes into its main narrative. Farhadi’s most recent drama, 2013’s The Past, was set in Paris.
Forushande is being set up at Arte France Cinema, Memento Films Productions and the director’s own Farhadi Film Production. No cast or prospective release details have been reported.
While Variety wrote: Rolling of Oscar-winning “A Separation” and “The Past,” Iranian director Asghar Farhadi is now shooting the Teheran-based drama “Forushande,” which Arte France Cinema has just boarded.
“Forushande,” which marks Farhadi’s seventh feature, follows a young couple whose relationship abruptly turns violent. The movie examines the slow transformation of a calm and inoffensive man into an uncompromising and cruel human being.
“As in my previous films, ‘Forushande’ addresses how social challenges can propel the downfall of some people,” said Farhadi.
Like “A Separation” and “The Past,” Forushande appears to weave social, moral and political themes through the personal journey of its protagonist. The movie is set against a contemporary backdrop.
Memento Films Productions, which produced “A Separation” and “The Past,” is producing with the Iranian director’s shingle Farhadi Film Production. Memento is also handling international sales and will distribute the project in France.
