Dir. Nora Twomey, Canada | Ireland | Luxembourg, 2017, DCP, in English

From executive producer Angelina Jolie and Cartoon Saloon, creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, comes the highly-anticipated new feature based on Deborah Ellis’ bestseller.

The Breadwinner tells the story of Parwana, a 12-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is arrested, Parwana dresses as a boy in order to work and provide for her family. Together with her best friend Shauzia, she risks discovery to try to find out if her father is still alive. - GKIDS
