Episode notes

Maryam Keshavarz’s semi-autobiographical film won awards at Sundance and jumps between tones as it switches from the perspective of daughter, mother, and grandmother. Our hosts, along with guest Artemis Pebdani, talk about the effect of THE PERSIAN VERSION, then share some of their favorite genre-bending (or genre-defying) films.
