Graphic novelist and filmmaker Marjane Satrapi

As a child in Tehran, Marjane Satrapi had a rebellious streak: barely in her teens she was already buying Iron Maiden cassettes off the black market, and getting in hot water with the Guardians of the Revolution. Kurt talks to Satrapi about her film "Persepolis," based on her acclaimed graphic memoir.
