This Friday, CINSSU presents Marjane Satrapi's animated and enthralling film rendition of her autobiographical graphic novel of the same name.

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 first hand how the new Iran, now ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, has become a repressive tyranny on its own.

Doors open 6:30PM at Innis Town Hall; screening starts at 7:00PM. Free admission and open to all U of T students and the public!
