The Breadwinner, dir. Nora Twomey, Canada / Ireland / Luxembourg, 2017, 94 min., English, 12

Nora Twomey’s animated film, based on the eponymous children’s novel by Deborah Ellis, tells the story of an eleven-year-old Afghani girl named Parvana, living in Taliban-ruled Kabul.
Parvana is an 11-year-old girl who lives under Taliban rule in Afghanistan in 2001. After the wrongful arrest of her father, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy to support her family. Working alongside a friend, she soon discovers a new world of freedom and danger. Drawing strength from the fantastical stories she invents; Parvana embarks on an epic quest to find her father and reunite her family.
