Persepolis

France 2007
D: Marjane Satrapi, Vincent Paronnaud, 96min
OV with German subtitles

Marjane is eight years old when the mullahs chase the Shah out of Persia and take over power. Now the world is suddenly different from what it used to be, but the rebellious girl doesn't even think about obeying the new, stricter rules. She prefers discovering Punk music, ABBA, Iron Maiden and, of course, boys. She doesn't even suspect that her childish protest might be dangerous – not only for herself but for the whole family. Based on the very popular, same-titled comic novels, this is an unconventional, fascinating, and deeply human animated film for adults.

Beginning in September 2010 and continuing until February 2011, the Filmmuseum will feature a series of 20 films from various genres which will take their audiences into the most remote regions of the Islamic world. The films to be shown couldn’t be more diverse and together form a cinematic kaleidoscope that addresses ongoing political tensions and themes such as modernisation, globalisation, violence and perceived departures from tradition, the power of reason, and life and poetry in our contemporary global world.
