In 1970s Iran, Marjane 'Marji' Statrapi watches events through her young eyes and her idealistic family of a long dream being fulfilled of the hated Shah's defeat in the Iranian Revolution of 1979. However as Marji grows up, she witnesses first hand how the new Iran, now ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, has become a repressive tyranny on its own. With Marji dangerously refusing to remain silent at this injustice, her parents send her abroad to Vienna to study for a better life. However, this change proves an equally difficult trial with the young woman finding herself in a different culture loaded with abrasive characters and profound disappointments that deeply trouble her. Even when she returns home, Marji finds that both she and homeland have changed too much and the young woman and her loving family must decide where she truly belongs

Zed à Tokyo : Cirque du Soleil by Cirque du Soleil( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Witness how ZED? comes to life in its making-of documentary "ZED in Tokyo". Learn, through the words of show director Francois Girard (The Red Violin) how the show became more than its individual pieces. Through the nurturance and cultivation of a sense of community between ZED artists, musicians and technicians, Girard encouraged the show to develop its own arrangement and follow the rhythm of its own heartbeat. In this stylistic documentary, director and interviewer Vali Fugulin uses a series of vignettes and Japanese style Anime to reveal ZED. Artists tell the stories of their new Cirque du Soleil? lives and reveal a real picture of the difficulties they face in such a massive production. As the ZED show brings together opposite themes to create unity rather than division, "ZED in Tokyo" brings together the many parts that went into creating the final result in Tokyo, a harmonic, poetic and magical composition
