Join us for a screening of the film «Persepolis» based on Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel. Following the film will be a short audience discussion and reception.

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 program is in conjunction with our exhibition «Urban Mapping: Public Space through the Lens of Contemporary Iranian Artists» on display September 1 — October 29, 2017.
