Competition: Persian Lessons! (Ended)

Enter our competition to win a DVD of Persian Lessons, a powerful and harrowing true story of survival, on DVD 8 February 2021!

On digital platforms from 22 January and on DVD from 8 February, Persian Lessons is a powerful and harrowing story of survival from director Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog), that received a Special Gala screening at the Berlin Film Festival 2020.

Nazi-occupied France, 1942. Gilles (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, 120 BPM (Beats per Minute), The Intruder) is arrested by SS soldiers alongside fellow Jews and sent to a camp in Germany. He narrowly avoids sudden execution by swearing to the guards that he is not Jewish, but Persian. This lie temporarily saves him, but Gilles gets assigned a life-or-death mission: to teach Farsi to Head of Camp Koch (Lars Eidinger, Personal Shopper, High Life), who dreams of opening a restaurant in Iran once the war is over. Through an ingenious trick, Gilles manages to survive by inventing words of “Farsi” every day and teaching them to Koch. The particular relationship between the two men sparks the jealousy of other prisoners and SS guards towards Gilles. And while the suspicions of Koch grow every day, Gilles understands that he will not be able to keep his secret forever.

To celebrate the upcoming release of this powerful Holocaust survival tale, we have been given two DVDs to give away (courtesy of Signature Entertainment): if you’re a U.K. resident and you’re over 18, enter our competition to win a free DVD of Persian Lessons!
