Marjane Satrapi

Co-director, 'Persepolis'

Literally drawn from a bestselling graphic novel series by Marjane Satrapi, “Persepolis” tells the hard yet often humorous story of the author’s experience as a young woman living in post-Islamic Revolution Iran. Satrapi’s first feature, which she co-directed with Vincent Paronnaud, has been a fest favorite (and a predictable target for Iranian outrage) since it won the jury prize at Cannes. That award may be a harbinger of things to come: “Persepolis” will represent France in the foreign-language film Oscar race, and its hand-drawn, monochromatic images could seduce the Academy’s animation branch as well.
