Marjane Satrapi is Back with a New Movie
If you’ve never seen Persepolis, an elegantly animated film of a rebellious little girl growing up during the Iranian War, do yourself a favor and purchase the DVD. It’s a classic for any collection. The film earned Marjane Satrapi (also a children’s book author) an Oscar in 2008. She illustrated and wrote the original graphic novel for Persepolis, another must buy (trust me readers). This week, Marjane premiered her new epic film Chicken with Plums in theaters which moved me beyond words. I was lucky enough to meet the wildly intellectual overactive mind and chat about childhood and her obsession with death.
