Persepolis screening, plus Q&A

// 27 August 2008

For London-based readers, another chance to see Persepolis (which Cazz Blase reviewed earlier this month). F Word reader Suzi sent in the details:

SAT 13 Sep, 13.15pm, Hackney & Islington Amnesty Group presents Oscar

nominated Persepolis (12A). Artist and novelist Marjane Satrapi’s

autobiographical tale of a young girl’s coming-of-age in Iran during the

Islamic revolution. PERSEPOLIS is an enthralling tale of a spirited young

woman who has to deal with the consequences of her nation’s history.

The film screening will be followed by a Q & A with Diana Nammi, Director

of Kurdish and Iranian Women’s Rights Organisation, and Chair of

International Campaign Against Honour Killings and a Amnesty representative

who will talk about the Stop Violence Against Women campaign.

£7/£5 Concs & Under 15’s
