persepolisUC at the Esquire Film Series: French-language Women’s Filmmaking
September 8-22, 2017

More films are made each year by women directors in the French film industry than in any other nation in the world. This series explores the thematic, cultural, and geographic diversity of that output, presenting three French films or co-productions encompassing different approaches to women’s filmmaking in the French-speaking world. Each screening is introduced by an expert in the field of French Studies or Film Studies and will be followed by a discussion.

Sponsored by the UC Center for Film and Media Studies, the department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Romance Languages and Literatures, the Alliance Française of Cincinnati and the Esquire Theatre.

(France, USA, 2007, directed by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud)
This critically-acclaimed coming-of-age story follows an intelligent and outspoken young girl as she grows up during the Iranian Revolution. As opposed to a conventional autobiography, Persepolis is an animated film “full of warmth and surprise” (New York Times) as it depicts the life of director Marjane Satrapi. The film is adapted from the 2000 comic book of the same name by Satrapi.
