PERSEPOLIS at Pálás Cinema

In solidarity with Iranian women protesting for their rights after the death of Mahsa Amini while in the custody of the morality police, Pálás Cinema is re-presenting Marjane Satrapi’s seminal autobiographical film. While sanctions make financial support unfeasible, they’re presenting this screening free-of-charge to provide background and further insight into what’s happening in Iran.

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.
