Collins to work toward increasing visitation to Arkansas by groups and promoting the state's appeal
"This year the Cannes Film Festival, in an unconventional and unsuitable act, has chosen a movie about Iran that has presented an unrealistic face of the achievements and results of the glorious Islamic Revolution in some of its parts."Satrapi, though, emphasized the film's broader intentions:
"If we used real images, it would be a few Arabs in a country. Right away it would be an ethnic film. It becomes the problem of those people who live over there and are crazy about God; but drawings, with their abstract quality, emphasize the universal."Catch the film tonight at Riverdale 10 Cinema, 7 p.m., $8.
