Celebrate Women’s History Month with the film screening of Persepolis. Based on the autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi, the film Persepolis is a story of a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution of the 1970s. Free and open to the public. Rated PG-13.

“Persepolis is frequently somber, but it is also whimsical and daring, a perfect expression of the imagination’s resistance to the literal-minded and the power-mad, who insist that the world can be seen only in black and white.” (New York Times)
Persepolis is an emotionally powerful, dramatically enthralling autobiographical gem, and the film’s simple black-and-white images are effective and bold. (Critics Consensus, Rotten Tomatoes)
