UCLA Film & Television Archive presents

Sly (2018)
Directed by Kamal Tabrizi

Political satires are rare in Iranian cinema — to say the least — so it’s especially refreshing to come across one as openly and broadly comical as Sly. Qodrat (Behdad) dreams of high office while delivering fiery conservative speeches in his garage to a handful of oddball followers. When a twist of fate launches him into the political mainstream, his increasingly off-the-wall positions threaten to expose the corruption of the whole system.

Director: Kamal Tabrizi. Screenwriter: Aidin Sayar Sarie. Cast: Hamed Behdad, Vishka Asayesh, Azadeh Samadi

DCP, color, 90 min.

FREE admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
