Hanoi Doclab cordially presents the screening of two animations “Persepolis” and “Fleuve Rouge, Song Hong” and discussion with the two French directors, Stephanie Lansaque and Francois Leroy.
Time: 18:30 May 24th, 2013
Location: Big halle – Goethe institute – 56/ 58 Nguyen Thai Hoc – Ba Dinh – Hanoi.
Persepolis talks about the life of Marjanne Satrapi, an Iranian comic book artist, as a young girl in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. It is through the eyes of precocious and outspoken nine year old Marjane that we see a people’s hopes dashed as fundamentalists take power – forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands.
Fleuve Rouge, Song Hong by French directors Stephanie Lansaque and Francois Leroy. The story takes place in Hanoi, Vietnam, the animation shows a single day through the eyes of three brothers who have arrived in the big city of Hanoi for the first time from the countryside. Using a mix of animation and real life imagery such as photos and film, the visual style becomes a dreamlike hypnotic experience.
Both Persepolis and Song Hong are animation films but close to the documentary genre in their making. Francois Leroy, co-director of Song Hong, also worked on Persepolis as animator and special effects artist.
Francois Leroy and Stephanie Lansaque will discuss their works after the screening.
The screening aims for studies and research only.
