Dinner & a Movie - "Persepolis"


Monday, August 29, 2016
Niobrara County Library
6:00 p.m.

This fall, "A World Away" will be presented through films beginning on Monday, August 29 at 6 p.m. The dinner and Movie series will be led by Chadron State College Professor, Deane Tucker, PhD., and will feature films from the Mideast and African countries.

The first film in this series is "Persepolis." In 1970s Iran, Marjane 'Marji' Statrapi watches events through her young eyes and her idealistic family of a long dream being fulfilled of the hated Shah's defeat in the Iranian Revolution of 1979. However as Marji grows up, she witnesses firsthand how the new Iran, now ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, has become a repressive tyranny on its own. With Marji dangerously refusing to remain silent at this injustice, her parents send her abroad to Vienna to study for a better life. However, this change proves an equally difficult trial with the young woman finding herself in a different culture loaded with abrasive characters and profound disappointments that deeply trouble her. Even when she returns home, Marji finds that both she and homeland have changed too much and the young woman and her loving family must decide where she truly belongs.

A light meal will be available, Deane Tucker returns to lead the discussions. The film is rated PG-13 and is 95 minutes.
