In light of the feminist movement and human rights protests currently taking place in Iran, join the CAC and the community for an evening focused on these historic events. Organized in collaboration with local artist Lunaz and with the support of TT Stern-Enzi with the OTR Film Festival, the CAC is pleased to offer a screening of Persepolis, an animated biographical drama based on the graphic novel of the same name. The story tells of the coming-of-age of a young girl against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution.
Donations received at the event will go toward Iranian Diaspora Collective, a non-partisan, multi-faith group dedicated to amplifying the voices and advocating for the demands of people inside Iran; and the Geev, a project that fights internet censorship and digital rights for Iran.
Admission is free for CAC Members, $10 for non-members.
