Iran, 2020, 1 hour 39 minutes, subtitles 

From the director of the memorable CHILDREN OF HEAVEN, this will have you laughing, crying and rooting for the street kids at its heart. The captivating Ali and his gang of young hustlers get their big break when recruited to find a hidden treasure. But first they have to go back to the school where the treasure is buried. Energetic and refreshing, with its heart firmly in the right place, SUN CHILDREN is full of scene-stealing performances from a nonprofessional cast.


“A heart-rending story with unexpected depth of emotion… it has guts and heart and a grubby, street-smart charisma.” Guardian


“Majid Majidi has made some of the most visually stunning and emotionally stirring films in world cinema about the plight of under-privileged, exploited and abused young people, and Sun Children (Khorshid) is one of his very best.” Hollywood Reporter
