Farhadi’s Film at Cannes

Asghar Farhadi’s latest film ‘The Salesman’ has been announced as the last addition to the competition lineup at the upcoming Cannes Festival slated for May 11-22.
It will be the world premiere of the film which was shot in Tehran and centers around a couple, both actors, whose relationship turns sour during their performance of Arthur Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’.
Long-time Farhadi collaborators Taraneh Alidoosti, who played in ‘About Elly’, and Shahab Hosseini, who appeared in ‘A Separation’, co-star as the central couple, France24 reported.
Addition of ‘The Salesman’ takes the total number of films in Competition to 21.
Farhadi, 43, who won the foreign-language Oscar and Berlin Golden Bear for ‘A Separation’ in 2012, competed at Cannes with his previous film, the Paris-set ‘The Past’ which earned Berenice Bejo a best actress award and Farhadi the prize of the Ecumenical jury.
