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.
This film is presented as part of the Edmonton International Film Festival (EIFF). EIFF takes place September 28 to October 7. For more information please click here.
