GIVEAWAY – Win CHICKEN WITH PLUMS On DVD
CHICKEN WITH PLUMS, the latest film from Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, the Academy Award®-nominated filmmakers of Persepolis (2008, Best Animated Feature Film), will be released on DVD by Sony Pictures Classics and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on February 26th. Written and directed by Satrapi and Paronnaud, the film features a prestigious multicultural cast including Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Chiara Mastroianni (Persepolis), Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet), and Jamel Debbouze (Amelie).
Satrapi and Paronnaud received international acclaim for their innovative collaboration on the animated Persepolis. In addition to the Oscar® nomination, Persepolis was nominated for Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards, and it won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, along with two César Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best First Film. CHICKEN WITH PLUMS, like Persepolis, is an adaptation of a graphic novel by Satrapi that pushes the boundaries of filmmaking by combining live-action sequences reflecting a mixture of genres (expressionism, fantasy, melodrama) with a clever animated sequence of the classic tale “Appointment in Samarra.”
CHICKEN WITH PLUMS was an official selection of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival,
Venice International Film Festival, and the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. Special features on the DVD include Commentary with Directors Satrapi & Paronnaud, as well as the Tribeca Q&A.

Tehran, 1958. Since his beloved violin was broken, Nasser Ali Khan, one of the most renowned musicians of his day, has lost all taste for life. Finding no instrument worthy of replacing it, he decides to confine himself to bed to await death. As he hopes for its arrival, he plunges into deep reveries, with dreams as melancholic as they are joyous, taking him back to his youth and even to a conversation with Azrael, the Angel of Death, who reveals the future of his children. As pieces of the puzzle gradually fit together, the poignant secret of his life comes to light: a wonderful story of love, which inspired his genius and his music.
