KCRW Member Perk:Members receive timed priority admission to KCRW Partner Screenings

KCRW and Sony Pictures Classics invite you to a special advance screening of The Persian Version followed by a conversation with director, Maryam Keshavarz and film composer, Rostam moderated by KCRW’s Madeleine Brand.

Coming from two countries at odds with each other, Iranian-American Leila (Layla Mohammadi) strives to find balance and embrace her opposing cultures, while boldly challenging the labels society is so quick to project upon her. 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, when her secret is unceremoniously revealed, so are the distinct parallels between her life and that of her mother Shireen (Niousha Noor).

RSVPs for this event have reached capacity.
