Don’t miss this breathtaking animated film based on Marjane Satrapi’s revolutionary autobiographical graphic novel.

Persepolis, the poignant story of a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution, shines as one of the most important animated films of the century. It is through the eyes of precocious and outspoken nine-year-old Marjane that we see a people’s hopes dashed as fundamentalists take power — forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands. Clever and fearless, she outsmarts the “social guardians” and discovers punk, ABBA and Iron Maiden. DCP, France, 2007, Drama, 95 mins, in French and German with English subtitles.

Directed by: Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud
With the voices of: Catherine Deneuve, Chiara Mastroianni, Danielle Darrieux

Co-presented by community programming partner The Armenian Film Society
