Designed for AS Film and Media students in the first term of their course and including a full screening of PERSEPOLIS, the event will explore the key concept of narrative in relation to adaptations from graphic novels

to film. The aim will be to understand how PERSEPOLIS works as a filmic narrative and the extent to which the graphic novel, the animated film and the live action film utilise different narrative strategies.

Led by Roy Stafford, Freelance Film Lecturer.

Screening: PERSEPOLIS 12A

Deserved winner of the Jury Prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, the lively, hand-drawn animation PERSEPOLIS was adapted from the autobiographical series of graphic novels by author Satrapi and co-director Paronnaud.
