Persepolis screening, plus Q&A
Jess McCabe // 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.
