    Biography

    An active human rights campaigner, the Iranian-born Marjane Satrapi started her career as a graphic novelist and illustrator. In 2007, she collaborated with Vincent Paronnaud to direct the screen adaptation of her autobiographical graphic novel, Persepolis, as a black and white animated film. Their film won the Jury Prize at Cannes the same year and picked up two Cesar Awards in 2008, for Best Film and Best Screen Adaptation. In 2011, she once again teamed up with  Paronnaud to adapt another of her graphic novels, this time as a live action film, Chicken with Plums, featuring Mathieu Amalric. She went on to shoot The Gang of the Jotas, a comedy that centers on the wacky conversion of a couple of professional sports players into contract killers, with Maria de Medeiros in the lead role. In 2015, Marjane Satrapi released The Voices, a German-American co-produced horror-comedy starring Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, and Anna Kendrick.
