Event Description
The International Area Studies Film Festival presents “Persepolis” which has been touted as the film that Iran didn’t want the world to see.

This adaptation of Satrapi's bestselling autobiographical graphic novel details the trials faced by an outspoken Iranian girl who finds her unique attitude and outlook on life repeatedly challenged during the Islamic revolution. Among its many awards and nominations, “Persepolis” won the Cannes Jury Prize for 2007, and was nominated for Best Animated Feature by the Academy Awards.

Time magazine's Richard Corliss praised the film, calling it “a coming-of-age tale that manages to be both harrowing and exuberant.” It also has been ranked #58 in Empire magazine's "The 100 Best Films of World Cinema" in 2010.
