12 April 2012 Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis in a comic book and on screen

Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud are the authors of the film adaptation of the famous comic book, Persepolis. Tomorrow (Friday, the 13th of April) at 8 p.m., fans of the book will gather not in a library, but in the KIKA cinema in Podgórze to watch the film adaptation of Persepolis in the framework of Małopolskie Studio Komiksu (the Malopolska Comic Studio). Marjane Satrapi, the Iranian-born French author of comic books, graphic novels, children's books, and director of animated movies, was the guest of the 2nd edition of the Conrad Festival.

Persepolis is a comic masterpiece conceived and drawn by Marjane Satrapi. The French-Iranian artist used it as the canvas for a brilliant animated movie, which features stories described in both parts of the comic book. The movie has received a lot of publicity around the world, winning top accolades at the Cannes Festival, and transformed the acclaimed comic book artist into a movie star – Rafał Stanowski recommends the screening at the Kika cinema in today's issue of Magnes, the weekly supplement to Dziennik Polski.

In Poland, apart from Persepolis and Chicken with Plums, we can also read the comic book entitled Embroideries. Satrapi lives in Paris and draws illustrations for, among others, The New York Times and The New Yorker.
