Storyboard Text

  • In the novel the illustrator shows dialogue through Marjane's uncle Anoosh and his tough journey through jail. The dialogue is sad yet intense to portray the meaning and seriousness of his life in the past, the illustrator, Marjane Satrapi chose to use a strong dialogue in that chapter.
  • Its okay, she will make it
  • Visuals can tell a lot through a picture and on page 51 the visual is a picture of Ahmadi getting violently whipped on the back and an image of him getting a hot iron seared on his back. This is happening because of the political issues going on at that time which were consequences the government gave if someone had disobeyed. Satrapi shows explicit images of what had happened.
  • The next element is panels, and in the example the panel is all black showing Marji floating in inner space. The panel represents her lost in fear of what is to come next with the war because at that point it was just the beginning. Satrapi is strongly showing the confusion Marji has by having the panel all black and having her float in space portraying marjane's "confusion" and how "lost" she is feeling.
  • This certain panel shown on the very last page, fills the bottom half of the page and is showing Marji in the back round while seeing her mom laying in her dads arms. Satrapi is portraying the main political issue which was war. She is showing Marji leaving the country to get away from the war and the panel helps emphasize the sadness and terror they are all feeling.
  • Bubbles indicate talking and their words, and in the bubble the words coming from Marji were bold and in all caps indicating that she is yelling. The Women were yelling at Marji for wearing "normal" clothes and were calling her names, they were about to take her to jail until Marji pretended to cry and made a really believable excuse. Satrapi seems to be using the bubbles as symbols to show how Marji's attitude was toward the women.
  • Throughout the novel Satrapi shows great detail in explaining the political issues going on at that time through illustrating panels, gutters, balloons, visuals, and dialogue. When it came to the visuals and all the images, they were all very explicit in showing what was happening around Marjane and her family. The struggles and journey she had made through her childhood and adolescence.
