Iran gloates over Oscar for film they criticised...

It's all Politics...The industry cannot be looked at as apolitical

On Monday night, the Iranian film A Separation won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. It marks the Islamic Republic's first Academy Award, and earned a rare stamp of approval from the Iranian government, which called it a success over Israel. The Israeli film Footnote was also nominated in the category. Audie Cornish talks to The Washington Post's Thomas Erdbrink in Tehran about the reaction in Iran.
