EXTENDED A SECOND WEEK! A phenomenal performance by Cannes Best Actor Winner Shahab Hosseini anchors director Asghar Farhadi's THE SALESMAN, screening February 17 - 23 at The Frida Cinema.

By a nasty turn of events one of those former clients pays a visit to the apartment one night while Ranaa is alone at home taking a bath, and the aftermath of the event turns the peaceful life of the couple upside down.Find out more »
