Iranian film director Asghar Farhadi skipped the Academy Awards ceremony this year but earned the respect of the film community at large.

The director, who also won an Oscar this year for Best Foreign Language Film, boycotted the awards as a mark of protest against US President Trump’s immigration policies.
