Event description

Description

WHAT: Into Film are pleased to present a screening of Persepolis as part of the Spring Screenings programme celebrating women in animation.

WHEN: Friday 9 March, 10:00am – 12:05pm

WHERE: Rhyl Little Theatre, 17 Vale Rd, Rhyl LL18 2BS


Synopsis: A highly original and brilliant animated portrait of a young girl's coming of age in revolutionary Iran, adapted from an acclaimed graphic novel by exiled Iranian artist Marjane Satrapi, who co-directed the movie too. The story follows Marjane, a smart and strong-willed girl whose life is forever changed when the Shah of Iran is overthrown by the Islamic Revolution of 1979. While far from being supporters of the Shah, Marjane's left-wing parents find their lives even harder under the new regime - and Marjane herself finds it impossible to adapt, rebelling in a country where rebellion increasingly has no place, especially for girls.

Certificate: 12A, Into Film recommends 11+

Language: French, English, Persian, German (English Subtitles)

Length: 96 minutes

*Educators must ensure they book tickets for themselves as well as students. On the order form, please indicate how many young people and how many adults will attend out of the total amount of tickets you have booked.*


We look forward to seeing you at the screening!

In recognition of International Women’s Day in March 2018 and in support of Anim18 (the BFI FAN celebration of British Animation, led by Chapter and Film Hub Wales) Into Film’s Spring Screenings programme is all about British and International Women in Animation. Highlighting a variety of career opportunities such as VFX supervisor, Puppeteer, Producer and Director within the animation industry, and through the careers of the women that have made these films, we hope to inspire young women and young men aged between 16 and 19 to think about following their own paths into the world of animation.
