Persepolis (2017)- Donation Film Night at Blackburne House
When: March 18 2020
Where: Merseyside, United Kingdom
Based on Satrapi's graphic novel about her life in pre and post-revolutionary Iran and then in Europe. The film traces Satrapi's growth from child to a rebellious, punk-loving teenager in Iran. In the background are the growing tensions of the political climate in Iran in the 70s and 80s, with members of her liberal-leaning family detained and then executed, and the background of the disastrous Iran/Iraq war.
Tickets are free, but you can donate any amount you wish - and by doing this, you are directly helping educate women at Blackburne House. They are a charity whose primary aim is to educate and train women (some disadvantaged) to change their lives.
They do ask that you buy one soft or alcoholic beverage - and a delicious supper menu will be available to purchase.
