The Breadwinner (12A)

Parvana, is an eleven-year-old girl living under Taliban rule in Kabul in 2001. When her father is arrested for being an intellectual, Parvana cuts off her hair and takes to the streets in boy’s clothes in an attempt to earn a living to feed her family. Awaiting their father’s release, Parvana tries to keep her family’s spirits up with invented tales that in turn inspire her own epic quests into adventure and danger. A beautiful, but unflinching animated feature.
