Dir: Asghar Farhadi / Iran / 2hrs

This film tells the story of a sexual assault that exposes the emotion seething beneath the surface of Iranian bourgeoisie. This domestic drama from the director of A Separation lays the symbolism on with a trowel- but it works. “The Salesman” is a well-crafted, valuable drama.

Dir: Julie Dash / USA / 1hr 48mins

“Daughters of the Dust” is a film of spellbinding visual beauty about the Gullah people living on the Sea Islands off the South Carolina-Georgia coast at the beginning of the 20th Century. More than any other group of Americans descended from West Africans, the Gullahs through their isolation were able to maintain African customs and rituals.
