Tomorrow evening (2/26/2012), the makers of the Iranian film, A Separation, will find out if it is an Oscar winner in either of the two categories for which it is nominated (Best Foreign Language Film, Best Original Screenplay). Last week, The Atlantic magazine featured, on its website, a conversation between Robin Wright and Azar Nafisi (author of Reading Lolita in Tehran and Things I’ve Been Silent About). Nafisi’s Reading Lolita in Tehran was the summer reading assigned to The College of Wooster’s incoming first year students during the summer of 2006. She was a speaker as a part of the Wooster Forum that fall.
I highly recommend checking out this conversation in The Atlantic!
UPDATE: A Separation won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
