Asghar Farhadi Talks about A Separation

In this interview the great Iranian director Asghar Farhadi talks about his film A Separation [jodai-ye nader az simin], his views on filmmaking, his education as a filmmaker and the problems Iranian filmmakers have as opposed to filmmakers from other countries. He obviously understands English, but he speaks with the help of an interpreter who is absolutely brilliant. I do not know her name but I get the feeling she is a feminist with a degree from some place like NYU, based on certain vocabulary clues such as the use of the word "gaze." Like Woody Allen, Farhadi acknowledges the special influence Ingmar Bergman has had on his work.
