Friday Mar 29
We had such a great crowd at last years FREE FEMINIST FRIDAY that we've decided to do it again! This year with the coming-of-age story of a precocious and outspoken young Iranian girl that begins during the Islamic Revolution.
Persepolis is based on the Marjane Satrapi graphic novel (of the same name) about her life in pre and post-revolutionary Iran and then in Europe. The film 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.
