Written and directed by Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, the film A Separation is the early front-runner for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.

The film has already won big at the Berlin International Film Festival, snagging the Golden Bear for Best Film -- a first for an Iranian film. It also won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film.  The movie comes at a time when other Iranian filmmakers, like Jafar Panahi, are forbidden to work or have been jailed by the Iranian government.

Film contributor Milos Stehlik and Nari Safavi join Worldview to discuss A Separation. Milos is the director of Facets Multimedia and Worldview's film contributor. Nari Safavi is President of the Pasfarda Arts & Cultural Exchange.
