Iran's Oscar-Winner to Screen Film in Support of Afghan Refugees

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian film director Asghar Farhadi is reportedly planning screenings of his Oscar-winning film, "A Separation," to express solidarity in support of Afghan refugees in Iran.



Farhadi was quoted as saying on April 29 by "Shargh" daily that he is planning to return to Iran from Paris, where he is making preparations for his latest project, to hold screenings of his film, which won this year's Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film and a Golden Globe.

The screenings, which are due to take place on May 11 and 12, will be followed by a discussion between Afghans and Iranian citizens.

Iran has been a generous host for more than 2 million Afghan refugees for two decades, with little help from the international community.
