The Breadwinner

Hi all, Apologies for the massive delay, but it has been finally decided that The Breadwinner will be the final screening this term.
An Academy award-nominated animation, The Breadwinner centres on the story of a young girl who sets about rescuing her father from the clutches of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
It comes from the same people who animated the Song of the Sea... and has similar qualities : gorgeous animation, interwoven folklore stories, and a heart that belongs to the family unit.
Directed by Nora Twomey in her solo debut from the book by Deborah Ellis, it's a familiar story (girl cuts hair to pass as boy to obtain freedom of movement) in an unfamiliar setting.
Angelina Jolie is executive producer ... and, best of all, it is
SUBTITLED!! Hooray.
The Breadwinner is not for children...
