Using PERSEPOLIS as a focus text, Michaela Salmon and Cormac Conway will structure this study session around language exercises and citizenship discussion topics which allow students to examine the film’s social issues.
This study session will include a full screening of PERSEPOLIS and study materials for classwork before and after the session will be provided.
Led by Michaela Salmon and Cormac Conway, Manchester Adult Education Services.
Screening: PERSEPOLIS 12A
Directors: Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi, France, 2007, 96 mins. In English
In 1978, when Marjane Satrapi was 9 years old, the Islamic Revolution deposed the Shah and forever changed the Iran that she had grown up in. PERSEPOLIS is an incredibly touching coming-of-age story and a personal insight into a defining moment in modern Persian history.
