Dir. Marjane Satrapi, Vincent Paronnaud France, United States 96 min PG-13

2007 Sony Pictures Classics

Based on Satrapi's graphic novel 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.

PERSEPOLIS is recommended for French classes, world culture/literature classes, English classes, and art classes.
