The Breadwinner 12A

Part of Films for the Family
Nora Twomey, Canada, 2017, 89m.

Based on the best-selling novel by Deborah Ellis, ‘The Breadwinner’ is an Oscar nominated animation celebrating the universality of family bonds from the creators of ‘Song of the Sea’ and ‘The Secret of Kells’.

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.

Equal parts thrilling and enchanting; The Breadwinner employs an innovative mix of 2D animation with painted environments, as well as digital paper cut–out segments. It’s all woven into a luminous animated tale about growing up in an ever-changing world of conflict and oppression, the strength of girls, and the power of stories to sustain hope through dark times.

This is a 'Pay What You Can' Family Screening.

On Saturdays and on weekdays during the school holidays, the film will be followed by a free activity for children.
