Halloween scenery backdrop by Eric Hikade.

Just as Lemur leaned in for her very first bite, the table rattled, the lights flickered, and the ocean grumbled. Catapulted by the sudden shock, Lemur stumbled face first—splat!—into her tasty snack. Another violent jolt of the submarine threw the duo into the air and onto the hard wooden floor. Shakily crawling onto their feet, Otter and Lemur swayed and scrambled their way to the nearest window. They peered out into the frightening darkness of the ocean, and wondered ‘just, what could be going on?
Excerpt from “Otter and Lemur” the Extended Adventure
As with many of the authors of respected literary, artistic, and cinematic memoirs of repressive regimes and contested regions often plagued with poverty and struggle, Marjane Satrapi comes from a privileged and intellectual segment of Iranian society with sufficient resources for education and relocation—or in Marjane’s words, with privilege of “freedom.” Her family and her own exceptionality is touched on at many points throughout the film, either as self-conscious, guilt-driven acceptance of her wealthy and progressive background or as a basis for her commentary of the more easily influenced herds of society. Beyond the passing depictions of the people of Iran—the school teacher whose ideology changes overnight or the former drunkard that instantly swears off all vices of secular life as Islam dictates it—Marjane’s own socioeconomic background remains a source of very personal feelings as the presenter of rich experiences as well as loss and regret. Until the very end, she does not let the audience forget issues of privilege, and the bittersweet consequences of possessing it.
