Asghar Farhadi: Life & Cinema

by The Critical Press

How do we become moral? Do we learn from our parents, our family, our institutions, religion, at school or through life experience? In this video essay, The Critical Press examines the nuanced treatment of morality in the films of Asghar Farhadi, a filmmaker whose work explores the complexity of moral quandaries without ever taking a side.
