  • Here on DVD is the critically acclaimed animated film based on the graphic novel. Persepolis is the autobiographical tale of Marjane, a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. It is through the eyes of this 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, ABBA and Iron Maiden, the daily fear as bombs fall on Tehran during the Iran/Iraq war and those close to her fall foul of the regime is palpable… 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.
