Much like «Fun Home,» «Persepolis» got its start as a graphic novel — join us for a free screening, with a free popcorn bar and drinks!
Based on Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel about her life in pre- and post-revolutionary Iran and then in Europe, «Persepolis» traces Satrapi's growth from child to rebellious, punk-loving teenager in Iran.
In the background are the growing tensions of the political climate in Iran in the 70s and 80s, with members of her liberal-leaning family detained and then executed, and the background of the disastrous Iran/Iraq war.
This film is rated PG-13 and runs 1 hour and 36 minutes.
