A Separation @ Art Gallery of New South Wales


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.
