Iranian filmmaker to contest Cannes Film festival with “Leyla’s Brothers”

The director of the Iranian movie “Just 6.5” will attend the Cannes Film festival’s competition section with his new film “Leyla’s Brothers”.

The film is Saeed Roustaei’s last movie in which such big names star as Taraneh Alidousti, Navid Mohammadzade, Saeed Poursamimi and Peyman Moadi are seen.

That’s going to be Roustaei’s first appearance in the competition section of the Cannes Film Festival. Other famous filmmakers participating in the section include David Cronenberg, Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, Park Chan-wook, James Gray, Ruben Östlund, Hirokazu Koreeda and Kelly Reichardt.

Roustaei’s “Just 6.5” was successful in France where, after screening at international festivals, its name changed to “The Laws of Tehran”.

The 75th Cannes Film Festival will run from May 17 to 28 on an in-person basis.
