Transcript of Marjane Satrapi

"I don't like the word 'autobiography.' I rather like the term 'autofiction.' The second you make a script out of the story of your life, it becomes fictional. Of course, the truth is never far. But the story is created out of it."
- Marjane Satrapi
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.
As Marji grows up, she witnessed first hand how the new Iran, now ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, has become a repressive tyranny on its own.
With Marji dangerously refusing to remain silent at this injustice, her parents send her abroad to Vienna to study for a better life.
This change proves an equally difficult trial with Marji finding herself in a different culture loaded with abrasive characters and profound disappointments that deeply trouble her.
When she returns home, Marji finds that both she and homeland have changed too much and Marji and her loving family must decide where she truly belongs.
