A Separation @ Art Gallery of New South Wales

Description:

The first Iranian film to win the coveted Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival as well as the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, A separation is a fascinating, complex and painful portrait of fractured family relationships. After 14 years of marriage, Simin (Hatami) and Nader (Moaadi) want to separate. They live with their intelligent, sensitive 11-year-old daughter Termeh (Farhadi) and Nader’s elderly father (Shahbazi), who is in need of constant care. Depicting the shifting power struggles within a modern family, the film explores themes of disparity between the rich and the poor and the traumatic transition from an old society to a new. This captivating drama was one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2011 and provided an insight for audiences around the world into Iranian culture and identity.
