UPCOMING EVENTS

November 30, 2017: Screening, Persepolis
Massanutten Regional Library, 6-8p

James Madison University’s Duke Hall Gallery of Fine Art & Massanutten Regional Library Present a screening of the film, Persepolis.
The screening will take place at the Massanutten Regional Library, 174 South Main Street, Harrisonburg, VA 22801

Persepolis is a graphic autobiography by the Franco-Iranian artist Marjane Satrapi. The film is a coming-of-age story about her experience growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution in the 1970’s. Her parents are secular leftists who initially welcome the revolution, but the overthrow of the Shah and the rise in Islamic fundamentalism leads to a despotic and restrictive political state. Marjane moves to Austria to study where she learns more about herself and has imaginary conversations with Karl Marx and God. She shares with us her uncomfortable and alienating experiences with authenticity and humor, and provides a personal understanding of Iranian history and identity.
