True story of a young girl as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian revolution. The story traces her growth from child to rebellious, punk-loving teenager in Iran. Created by a team of over a hundred animators who, on Satrapi's direction kept the drawings simple and avoided high-tech techniques that could date it. The film went on to win awards across the world.
