    Marjane Satrapi's Perseplis: A SAN FRANCISCO FILM SOCIETY BENEFIT

    Bay Area - San Francisco Wednesday - December 12, 2007     06:00 PM

    Co-directors Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paraonnaud in attendance

    Join us on December 12 at the newlook Sundance Cinemas Kabuki for a Film Society benefit screening of the award-winning Persepolis. Marjane Satrapi (with co-director Vincent Paronnaud) brings her acclaimed memoirs about an irrepressible young girl growing up in Iran and Europe to the big screen with a style that combines a vivid and bold visual design with amusing and heart-rending storytelling. Thematically rich, the film covers the changing political climate in Iran during the '70s and '80s, the difficulties and challenges of boarding school and expatriate life, as well as the admirable efforts of the Satrapi family to maintain a warm and open home life amidst an increasingly hostile external environment. Featuring the vocal talents of Chiara Mastroianni and her real-life mother Catherine Deneuve as Marjane and her mother, this Cannes prizewinner (and submission for Best Foreign Language Film) is a sensational film for adults and discerning younger audiences.

    6:00 pm Reception
    7:30 pm Screening with extended intro by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paraonnaud
