A ROCKY-esque tale of determination and grit, PLATFORM follows three Iranian sisters as they compete to become international champions of Wushu, a Chinese martial art. The sisters’ thrilling underdog story explores not only their dedicated training but also their surprising place in society as they challenge traditional gender roles on the path to success.

A discussion and Q&A will follow the screening.

This event is free and open to the public. No Registration is required.

This event is presented by Docunight and UCI Jordan Center for Persian Studies & Culture and with generous support from Saman Foundation.
