Organized By: BEAHIVE
Latest Activity: Jul 24, 2009
Join us for our first monthly film screening, an intimate, informal gathering at the hive.
Each month we'll show a film with a message, sometimes entertaining, sometimes political, always inspiring, engaging and thought provoking.
We'll start the evening with a kind of BYOB happy hour at 7:30 and then screen the film at dusk. We'll have healthy, organic popcorn. Please bring some snacks and drinks, preferably to share, if you want.
This month's film: Persepolis
Marjane (voiced by Chiara Mastroianni) just wants to be an ordinary kid, but that isn't easy in 1978 Iran. This profound animated film follows Marjane's childhood in a repressive society, her adolescence in France and return to Tehran as an adult. Based on Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel, this Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature Film also features the vocal talents of Catherine Deneuve and Simon Abkarian.
