Iranian Film 'The Salesman' Nominated For Oscar Amid Travel Ban

President Trump’s visa travel ban has caused disruption in various industries, including Hollywood.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s film, The Salesman, is nominated for the Best Foreign-Language Academy Award. Farhadi said even if granted an exemption, he would not attend the Oscars.  

WBEZ Film Contributor, Milos Stehlik of Facets Multimedia, will talk about The Salesman and the Gene Siskel Film Center’s 2017 “Festival of Films From Iran”.
