After Cannes Awards, Iranian Cast Receive Hero's Welcome

Friday, 27 May 2016 09:56 AM EDT

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's state news agency is reporting that the cast and crew "The Salesman," which won two prizes at the Cannes film festival this week, have returned to the Iranian capital where they were greeted by crowds of fans.

IRNA says that a welcoming ceremony on Friday morning was attended by veteran Iranian cinematographers, as well as local journalists and supporters.

"The Salesman" was screened for the first time at the 2016 Cannes film festival. Lead actor Shahab Hosseini won a Palme d'Or for best actor and director Asghar Farhadi picked up the award for best screenplay.

In 2012 Farhadi received Iran's first Oscar when "A Separation" won best foreign film.

"The Salesman" is an Iranian version of "Death of a Salesman," a play by Arthur Miller.
