Director: Nora Twomey | 90-mins. | Canada/Ireland/Luxembourg | 2017 | Animation/Family | TRAILER

Edmonton Premiere! Renowned animation studio Cartoon Saloon has made two of the most memorable animated films in recent memory with THE SECRET OF KELLS and SONG OF THE SEA, and their latest is both a welcome addition to their small but impressive filmography, as well as a signal of the studio’s future with expansive international productions. THE BREADWINNER is the story of Parvana, the daughter of an unfairly imprisoned family patriarch, who must disguise herself as a boy in order to work and support her family living under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. Self-empowerment and imagination face off against oppression in this family friendly tale that educates and celebrates the culture, history and beauty of Afghanistan.

About the Director:
This is Nora Twomey’s first solo directorial effort with the Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon that she co-founded with Ross Murray, Tom Moore, and Paul Young. With high praise from both the animation community and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stemming from her short films and co-directing credits there and many eyes eagerly awaiting what Nora Twomey has in store with THE BREADWINNER, including major pop culture figures like Angelina Jolie who has an executive producer credit with THE BREADWINNER.
