On Friday July 29th at 6:00 as part of a book based movies series the
Flying Brick will be showing Persepolis! The comics will be available
to check out now and in the future as well. Please bring a potluck
dish to share and remember the Brick is a sober space so no booze.
There will also be a discussion afterwords. Tell all your friends.

Persepolis is a 2007 animated film based on Marjane Satrapi’s
autobiographical graphic novel of the same name. The film was written
and directed by Satrapi with Vincent Paronnaud. The story follows a
young girl as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian
Revolution. The story ends with Marjane as a 24-year-old expatriate.
The title is a reference to the historic city of Persepolis.

Thursday, August 4th, 8:30pm – From the Back of the Room
From the film’s website:
Many people have the impression that the Riot Grrrl movement in the mid-90s was the end-all, be-all of female involvement in DIY punk. This is definitely not the case! Plenty of amazing ladies prior to this era paved the way for it, and plenty of amazing ladies continue to help keep DIY together today. This documentary chronicles the past 30 years of female involvement in DIY punk, and has interviews with over 30 women from across the country, ages 17 to 40. Race, gender, sexuality, motherhood, class, and activism are all addressed in this film, giving a more complete picture of how these women participate in the DIY community, and how it affects their daily lives.
Please join us for these wonderful films!
The Flying Brick holds sober events, unless otherwise noted. So please, no booze. 🙂
