Description

In this celebratory story of a young woman in Brooklyn, Leila (Layla Mohammadi), strives to find balance and embrace her opposing cultures, while challenging the labels society projects upon her. When her boisterous family reunites in New York City for her father's heart transplant, Leila keeps her “real” life separate from her family life. But when her secret is revealed, so are the distinct parallels between her life and that of her mother Shireen. Punctuated by a bright color palette, snappy comedic relief, and vibrant dance numbers, “The Persian Version” 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. Winning the Audience Award at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, writer-director-producer Maryam Keshavarz delivers a universal and timely story of the Iranian-American experience.
