Current news: Iran

After the controversial results of the elections in Iran we are hearing so much about that country and yet we know so little about it....!I can think of no better way than the film "Persepolis" and its writer and director, Marjane Satrapi to put you in contact with this country and its most recent history (on second thoghts, not so recent actually; let´s say, somewhere in the second part of the twentieth century)

"Persepolis" is an autobiographical graphic novel (i.e., it´s a part of Marjane Satrapi´s life told in a comic style) which, later on, became a film. Here is its trailer; it´s narrated in French because right now Marjane is living in France, but the subtitles are in English

If you want to know a little bit more about this book and film, watch this video where Marjane talks about her inspiration for the book,her family, her first impressions about comics...
