A Separation - Iran's Oscars hope after Golden Globe nomination


The Iranian film A Separation - which has won many international awards such as the Golden Bear award in Berlin - has its sights on a possible Oscar after a nomination at the Golden Globe awards.

Its director, Asghar Farhadi, who struggled for two years to get script approval from the Iranian authorities has since won awards at home and has been camera shy ever since his global success.

In this rare interview he says that he wants viewers to reflect once they leave the auditorium.
