IFI & INTERNATIONAL LITERATURE FESTIVAL DUBLIN: BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR

ABDELLATIF KECHICHE

(LA VIE D’ADÈLE – CHAPITRES 1 & 2)

Book Tickets

When the poet Sepideh Jodeyri published a Persian translation of Blue is the Warmest Colour, a prize-winning graphic novel about a passionate relationship between two young women, she faced a campaign of intimidation in her native Iran so fierce it drove her into exile in Prague.

In this special event, Sepideh Jodeyri joins LGBT activist Ailbhe Smyth to explore the cost of freedom of expression in a country where homosexuality is illegal.

The discussion will be followed by a special screening of Abdellatif Kechiche’s adaptation of Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2013.

Presented in association with Art for Amnesty.
