Persepolis the Movie
posted:
I saw the animated movie Persepolis last night. I first heard about this via Isabelle Dervaux when she mentioned trying to get the artist as part of ICON5. (not sure that went through)  Written and drawn by Marjane Satrapi, I highly recommend this movie.  Mostly in black and white, it's a story told in the first person by a young girl growing up in Iran.  We go from repressive rule by the Shah to even more repressive rule by a religious government .  In between an escape to study abroad in Vienna adds distance and humor to the story. The animation is top notch and the story is both funny, educational and touching.
