TEHRAN 1978: Marjane is eight. She thinks about the future and dreams of being a prophet saving the world.
Persepolis is the story of Marjane and paints an unforgettable portrait: raw, honest and funny. We follow her through revolutions, war, mourning, exile, but also the struggles of growing up, learning about life, puberty and first love, until she leave for France in 1994.
Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity.
Since its release, Persepolis has been translated all over the world, become a classic studied in schools, and has been the subjects of a film adaptation that has won numerous awards.
