Iranian comedy is perhaps a genre new to KFF but Winners sets a superb precedent.
One day nine-year-old Yahya and his friend Leyla find a precious statue. Sharing a passion for cinema, Yahya's boss Nasser Khan decides to help them find the owner.
We are thrilled that that Director, Hassan Nazer
will be in Keswick to introduce the film, which is the UK's entry for the Best International Film Oscar.
Thanks to Modern Films
“An entertaining adventure that has a lot going on beneath the surface. A story of magic being found in the most unlikely of places, the shining gold statuette at the centre of the piece provides a stark contrast that will make you think as well as smile.”
“One thing is for sure: Nazer, and everyone in his film, loves Iranian cinema. ”
