Join Vidiots and The Armenian Film Society for Persepolis – the poignant story of a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. A breathtaking and powerful film based on Marjane Satrapi’s revolutionary autobiographical graphic novel with beautiful black and white animation, Persepolis shines as one of the most important animated films of the century. It is through the eyes of precocious and outspoken nine-year-old Marjane that we see a people’s hopes dashed as fundamentalists take power — forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands. Clever and fearless, she outsmarts the “social guardians” and discovers punk, ABBA and Iron Maiden. So embrace your inner rebellion and join us for this special screening.
