Marjane Satrapi’s Next Film

Barry Gewen writes an appreciation of Marjane Satrapi’s work for the New York TimesPaper Cuts blog, occasioned by the recent DVD release of Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud’s Oscar-nominated animated film adaptation of Satrapi’s comics memoir Persepolis. Gewen also briefly surveys Satrapi’s other comics published in English translation, calling Embroideries a “disappointment” but praising the “largely ignored” Chicken with Plums.

Elsewhere, the Iranian news website Payvand notes that Satrapi’s next film will be a live-action adaptation of Chicken with Plums, to be produced again in collaboration with Paronnaud. Pantheon plans a softcover edition of that book for 2009 publication.
