Event Notes

× Coming from two countries at odds with each other, Iranian-American Leila strives to find balance and embrace her opposing cultures. When her family reunites in New York City for her father’s heart transplant, Leila navigates her relationships at arm’s length in an effort to keep her “real” life separate from her family life. However, her secret is unceremoniously revealed.… The comedy/drama THE PERSIAN VERSION is punctuated by a bright color palette, snappy comedic relief, and vibrant dance numbers and delivers an honest portrayal of a woman who remains unapologetically herself, blended seamlessly into a heartfelt story about family, belonging, and the undeniable influence of pop music. Winner of the Audience Award at The Sundance Film Festival.Official Trailer for The Persian Version
