Satrapi Speaks on Border Crossing with Bad Info

Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis, both a graphic novel and now a feature film, recently published a piece in The New York Times about the cultural conflicts and confusion that come with border crossing via panels and real life. We've got some contact zones going on here, as we usually do when we think about border crossings, and tons of educational value, as one might expect.

Check out what she has to say about conflation, misunderstanding, and outright obfuscation in "Defending My Country."
