Persepolis is the autobiographical tale of Marjane Satrapi, a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.

Through the eyes of this precocious and outspoken nine year old that we see a peoples’ hopes dashed as fundamentalists take power – forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands.

Though she outsmarts the ‘social guardians’ and discovers punk (hurrah!), ABBA and Iron Maiden, the daily fear permeating life in Iran is palpable, as bombs fall on Tehran during the Iran/Iraq war and those close to little Marjane fall foul of the regime…

Based on Marjane’s four graphic novels, this striking animation covers her childhood in Iran, her escape to an education in Vienna and then a bittersweet return to her native country.

What revolution was Marjane trying to escape?

  • 1. People’s Front of Judea
  • 2. French
  • 3. Islamic
  • 4. Spanish

Imagine that… winning one of the best punk rock toons and nifty soundtracks evah… xxx
