“Becoming a champion is easy; staying one is hard.” In a Rocky-esque tale of determination and grit, the Iranian documentary Platform follows three Iranian sisters as they compete to become international champions of Wushu, a Chinese martial art. The sister’s 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. (Iran, 2021, 86min., In Persian with English subtitles | Dir. Sahar Mosayebi)
