The Breadwinner (2017)
Parvana is an 11 year old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family.
With unwavering perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive.
Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, Oscar-nominee The Breadwinner is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.
The film, based on Deborah Ellis’ young adult novel, boasts Angelina Jolie as Executive Producer.
