- Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud
Based on writer-director Marjane Satrapi’s award-winning graphic novel, Persepolis closely follows her life as she comes of age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution (1978–79). Narrated by Chiara Mastroianni as the adult Marjane, the alternatingly funny and heartbreaking story chronicles how Marjane’s immediate family kept their ideals under increasingly oppressive regimes.
