A Separation | Film Screening and Discussion

Join us on Wednesday, February 8 from 2:00 – 4:25 pm ET in Classroom AD 30 for a screening of the film A Separation. This Iranian drama was written and directed by Asghar Farhadi and became the first Iranian film to win the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012. The film tells the story of a couple, Nader and Simin, and explores themes of family, morality, and the Iranian legal system. This is an in-person event at Union Theological Seminary. An RSVP is required to attend
