PERSEPOLIS, the Jury Prize winner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language film, opens December 25 at the Angelika New York and January 18 at the Angelika Houston.
Widely regarded as one of the best films of the year, PERSEPOLIS is directed by Iranian New York Times op-ed comic Marjane Satrapi, who joins forces with acclaimed French comic Vincent Paronnaud to write and direct the animated and affecting story of Marjane, a conflicted young girl who is coming of age in Iran during the Islamic revolution. The story follows her as she grows into a young woman and poignantly depicts the struggle she and her family face in choosing between her safety and her desire to retain her roots in Iran.
Below is the trailer for the film, as well as an exclusive clip from the film.
