Film Screening: Persepolis

Join the Yale Film Archive for a 15th anniversary screening of the Oscar-nominated PERSEPOLIS,

an animated tale of girlhood during the Iranian Revolution. Adapted by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud from Satrapi’s autobiographical graphic novels, PERSEPOLIS provides “a vivid, at times heartbreaking, portrait of a life and a nation in crisis” (V.A. Musetto) that still remains “full of warmth and surprise, alive with humor and a fierce independence of spirit” (A.O. Scott). Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
