about the film:

When 11-year-old Parvana’s father is taken by the Taliban, she and her family find life difficult without a man in the house. Women are forbidden from going anywhere unaccompanied, which means access to food or even trying to enquire about their father’s whereabouts is impossible.

If they are to survive, drastic action must be taken. That’s when Parvana cuts her hair and passes herself off as a boy. It’s a cruel environment, but as a boy she find a risky freedom in this war-torn city.

An animated tour de force from Cartoon Saloon (Song of the Sea), The Breadwinner is an important work, inspiring hope for a world where all women’s voices will be heard.
