When their housing complex suddenly threatens to collapse, Emad and Rana have to find a place to stay, moving to a nearby shabby apartment owned by one of their acquaintances. One of the apartment rooms is locked and filled with the luggage of the former tenant. This inconvenient displacement and disruption of personal space soon intersects a violent and terrible personal intrusion in their home. In spite of trying to erase what happened, the terrible events break through their minds again and again, and Emad proceeds to find the culprit in a reprisal attempt. At the same time, the couple is playing the lead roles in Arthur Miller's play "Death of a Salesman", and the deterioration of relationships in the play eerily mirrors the breakdown of understanding between the film's characters

The celebrated Iranian photographer, Nasrollah Kasraian and his wife, anthropologist Ziba Arshi, have documented many unique populations living within the borders of Iran. This film provides a fascinating look at the Turkmans of Iran, who live in small villages northeast of Teheran, near the Afghanistan border. It examines how Turkman society has changed over several years. Devil on the Roof captures varied aspects of their traditional culture. It shows how shamans treat physical and mental illnesses with music, sticks and swords. It depicts the women s roles - raising children, working in the rice fields and weaving magnificent rugs and clothing. Four years after the initial filming, the filmmakers return to the Turkman villages where they find radical changes have occurred. The introduction of electricity has brought television - the key to modernization. Because of their geographical location, the Turkmans can pick up TV transmissions from the Russian Turks (Turkmanistan) and have access to Russian - and American-programs. The children watch sitcoms, play video games, drink Coke and attend schools decorated with paintings of Mickey and Minnie Mouse

Une séparation by Aṣghar Farhādī( Visual )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Persian and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stand out film of the 2011 Berlin Film Festival and winner of the Golden Bear, A SEPARATION is a suspenseful and intelligent drama detailing the fractures and tensions at the heart of Iranian society. Written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, the film boasts a range of superb performances from the ensemble cast who collectively received the Silver Bears for both Best Actor and Best Actress at the Berlinale. The compelling narrative is driven by a taut and finely written script rooted in the particular of Iranian society but which transcends its setting to create a stunning morality play with universal resonance. When his wife (Leila Hatami) leaves him, Nader (Peyman Moadi) hires a young woman (Sareh Bayat) to take care of his suffering father (Ali-Asghar Shahbazi). But he doesn't know his new maid is not only pregnant, but also working without her unstable husband's (Shahab Hosseini) permission. Soon, Nader finds himself entangled in a web of lies, manipulation and public confrontations. A SEPARATION is the first ever Iranian film to be awarded the Golden Bear.--Artificial Eye

The salesman : Forushande( Visual )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in Persian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ein Ehepaar in Teheran, das an einer Inszenierung von Arthur Millers "Tod eines Handlungsreisenden" mitwirkt, muss Hals über Kopf seine Wohnung verlassen und findet Unterschlupf in Räumen, die zuvor einer als Prostituierte diskreditierten Mieterin gehörten. Als die Ehefrau abends die Wohnungstür offen lässt und von den Nachbarn bewusstlos vorgefunden wird, gerät die Ehe in eine schwere Krise. Das von subtilen Metaphern durchwebte Beziehungsdrama reflektiert die Probleme eines gebildeten Paars aus dem iranischen Mittelstand, das mit Fragen um Scham, Bloßstellung und Ehrgefühlen konfrontiert wird. Der fantastisch gespielte und elegant inszenierte Film spiegelt kunstvoll das Scheitern an den Geschlechterrollen; die packende Tätersuche entlarvt er als zweiten Akt einer Entmachtung im Ringen um Wahrheit, Rache und Vergebung."

1 edition published in 2013 in Iranian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In March 2012, Iranian movie 'A Separation' by Asghar Farhadi, 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 with Iran covered the world headlines, Farhadi talked about Iran's love for peace and the rich culture of the Iranians on the stage when receiving his award. This time the Iranians voice was heard through someone other than the government officials. This documentary shows the reaction of the Iranians to this Oscar award and has a general view on Iran's society of today" --IMDb

Just as an electoral urn is being parachuted from the sky, a young woman disembarks on the beach. To the soldier's bafflement, it turns out that she is in charge of the mobile electoral seat and voting on the islands; therefore the soldier is obliged to obey her orders and escort her with his rifle and army jeep across the desert, where the woman obstinately intends to collect the votes. During the day, stressed by a series of absurd events, the two learn to get to know each other. At sunset, when the young woman leaves, the man realizes that the secret vote contained much more than he had ever imagined. From IMDB
