Persepolis
2008
Based on Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel, this Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature Film follows a young woman's childhood in repressive Iran, her adolescence in France and her return to Tehran as an adult.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

The words "animated Iranian memoirs" don't usually send people rushing to rent a title, but this film deserves widespread attention. It's not just a moving and spirited life story, it's a look into real life in Iran too easily forgotten in modern times.
