The Breadwinner

Fri 8 Mar | 11.00am | £3.00 [Teachers Free]

Dir: Nora Twomey | 2017 | 93 mins | Certificate 12

From executive producer Angelina Jolie and multi-award-winning director Nora Twomey, ‘The Breadwinner’ tells the story of Parvana, 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 dauntless 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, ‘The Breadwinner’ is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.

Contains moderate threat, violence.

This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
