the breadwinner

23 and 24 February, 2018

Director Nora Twomey attends the screening on Fri 23 Feb

Irish animator Nora Twomey (The Secret of Kells) makes her solo feature debut with this exquisite, heartrending adaptation of Deborah Ellis’s beloved novel. When the Taliban rulers of Kabul imprison a teacher, his 11-year-old daughter Parvana (Saara Chaudry) disguises herself as a boy and becomes the family’s sole breadwinner. Executive produced by Angelina Jolie, this is a stirring tale of family, friendship and survival, with an imaginative range of animation techniques and a score partly recorded in Kabul using traditional musicians.

Beautiful and assuredly made
