Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi's animated feature narrates a young girl's coming of age after the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Based on Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel, the story follows her across borders when she is sent to a French school in Vienna, Austria. The film highlights the universal nature of adolescence and similarities between the human experience in Iran and that of different parts of the world, and it is presented in French, Persian, German and English with English subtitles. Elaine Berard, faculty member in the languages and intercultural studies department, leads a discussion following the screening that provides historical context for the film.
