Persepolis

Storyboard Text

  • “The Shah’s father took everything we owned. I lived in poverty.”
  • “I am the light of the aryans. I will make this country the most modern of all time. Our people will regain their splendor.”
  • Since the dawn of time, dynasties have succeeded each other but the kings always kept their promises. The Shah kept none.
  • All the country’s money went into ridiculous celebrations, frivolities, all to impress the head of state; the population couldn’t have cared less.
  • My father had gone to take some photos of the demonstration. It was strictly forbidden. He had been arrested once but escaped last minute.
  • “PLEASE! STOP IT! STOP IT! My husband died of cancer…”
  • The old woman was the widow of the victim that the crowd was calling a martyr.
  • I realised then, that I didn’t understand anything. I read all the books I could.
