Thursday June 25 2009 Film,18:15 -PERSEPOLIS!!

This week film selection’s decision could not remain uninfluenced and independent from the events going on now in Iran. Persepolis is an animation film, and one of Iranian Cinema’s most recent and greatest works.Rreleased in 2007, and based on Marjane Satrapi’s novel, the film tells the story of a young girl, Maryam, as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution and finally becomes an ex-patriot. The film is admirable for the great graphics and colours, but what really makes it a great film, is the simplicity and humor with which the director manages to comment on hot issues related to contemporary Iran and Western cultures both.Footage and filming from the recent violations and riots in Iran will open this film, together with an introductory speech by the Iranian Edinburgh University student Aidin Poori
