Ballarat Film Society – A Hero (Ghahreman)

May 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Iran, 2021, 127 min. Directed by Asghar Farhadi
Modern Iranian Morality Tale

Note – this is the 3rd, not the 2nd, Thursday in May.
The AGM will commence at 7.00 pm, followed by the film at 7.30

A-lister auteur Farhadi sets his latest film in the Iranian city of Shiraz. Ramin (Amir Jadidi) is in prison because of debt. During a 2-day leave, he tries to convince his creditor (Mohsen Tanabandeh) to withdraw his claim against part of the payment, but things don’t go according to plan.  A classic moral drama that demonstrates that money changes everything when many peoples’ interests clash within the public, institutional and cultural milieu of a country like Iran where the intersection of cultural forces is inescapable.  Farhadi has been a consistent Iranian filmmaker who tackles contemporary Iranian social class and gender issues in a way that explores acutely Iranian problems. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix: 2021.
