Doc Films at the University of Chicago
1212 E 59th St, Chicago, Illinois 60637
The best-reviewed film of 2011, A Separation was the winner of innumerable honors, including the Golden Bear at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival and Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. An Iranian couple is its focal point: Simin wants to leave Iran for their daughter's sake, while Nader wants to stay in Tehran to care for his ailing father. Neither is willing to budge; so, they separate. From that chasm, a wrenching and profound film emerges.
