TEHRAN - Iranian director Asghar Farhadi's "The Past" premiered in Tehran's theaters yesterday. The film will also go on screen in different cities across the country next week, the Iranian distributor of the film, Filmira, announced in a press release.
The French-language film, which is Farhadi's first project shot outside of his homeland, appears on screen in Iran with Persian subtitles.
The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year in May and brought its French star Berenice Bejo the Palme d'Or for best actress.
Bejo portrays Marie Brisson, a French woman who has ongoing domestic problems with her Iranian husband, Ahmad.
Farhadi was honored with the Grand Medal of Vermeil from the City of Paris for "The Past" early June.
His previous film "A Separation" won an Oscar, Golden Globe and French Cesar for best foreign film earlier in 2012 as well as Berlin's Golden Bear in 2011.
