Persepolis film bows at Cannes
The lineup for the 2007 Cannes Film Festival has been unveiled, and Marjane Satrapi’s much-anticipated Persepolis, based on her graphic novel, will be among the films competing. Here’s a shot of Satrapi, who currently lives in France, from last year’s festival, flanked by actress Chiara Mastroianni and "Persepolis" co-writer/director Vincent Paronnaud:
Also selected were Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof and Michael Moore’s new documentary Sicko. Separate films, we’re certain. The festival will take place from May 16 through 27.
