Leila’s Brothers

برادران لیلا

Directed by Saeed Roustaee

Cast: Navid Mohammadzadeh, Payman Maadi, Taraneh Alidoosti

FIPRESCI Prize, 2022 Cannes Film Festival

Her father and brothers may not admit it, but Leila runs their household. And when the family’s financial woes accumulate, Leila would be the one to come up with a plan, if only her harebrained brothers knew what was good for them. Saving a family that has long celebrated the men comes at a cost – and unearths hidden motivations. From the director of the acclaimed Just 6.5 (SDAFF 2019) comes an impassioned epic worthy of comparisons to Luchino Visconti.


Co-Presented by the Persian Cultural Center.
