Farsi-language film to be Israel’s Oscar entry

JERUSALEM (JTA) – “Baba Joon,” a Farsi-language movie made by an Iranian-Israeli director and a group of Iranian-born actors, will be Israel’s entry in this year’s Academy Awards. The film will be entered in the best foreign language film category after winning best picture at last week’s Ophir Awards, Israel’s version of the Oscars. It also won in four other categories: art direction, music, costume design and casting.

Set in an Israeli agricultural village, ”Baba Joon” is the story of familial conflict among three generations of Iranian Jewish men, written and directed by Yuval Delshad.
