The Breadwinner (2017) Dir: Nora Twomey
12, Ire / Can / Lux, Drama, 91mins
School Holiday Special Screening
Nora Twomey, the gifted filmmaker behind The Secret of Kells (2009) and Song of the Sea (2014), brings Deborah Ellis’ best-selling novel to the big screen. Parvana is an adolescent girl living in Taliban-controlled Kabul, who takes on the responsibilities of earning a living for the family, after the arrest of her invalided father. What makes Parvana’s story all the more remarkable is that as a girl in Taliban run Afghanistan, she does not have the right to work or earn a living, so she adopts the guise of a young male street hawker. A powerful and emotional insight into a modern Afghanistan shaped by the intensely patriarchal governance of the Taliban.
