    • Synopsis
    • In the morning of 27 March 2012, the Iranian movie “A Separation” won the Oscar Award for the Best Foreign Language Film. For the Iranian people this was more than a cinematic award. When sanctions and threats of war covered the world headlines, Asghar Farhadi talked about Iran’s love for peace and the rich culture of the Iranians. This documentary shows the reaction of the Iranians to their first Oscar Award. It is the first time that Americans and Iranians established a dialogue and relationship through Cinema. The ironic narration and the use of animation in some parts, along with its peaceful theme, made this documentary amusing as well as informative.
