Persepolis, released by Optimum Home Entertainment on 18th August 2008, is the autobiographical tale of Marjane Satrapi, sharing her experiences as a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.

It is through the eyes of this precocious and outspoken nine year old that we see a peoples' hopes dashed as fundamentalists take power - forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands. Though she outsmarts the "social guardians" and discovers punk, ABBA and Iron Maiden, the daily fear that permeates life in Iran is palpable, as bombs fall on Tehran during the Iran/Iraq war and those close to her fall foul of the regime...

Based on Marjane's four graphic novels, this striking animation covers her childhood in Iran, her escape to an education in Vienna and then a bittersweet return to her native country.

First time director Marjane Satrapi has brought her acclaimed novels to life with co-director Vincent Paronnaud and won a host of international awards in the process, including the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes and the Sutherland Trophy at the London Film Festival. Persepolis was named as France's official entry for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars and was nominated for Best Animated Feature.
