The Breadwinner, Nora Twomey
Discovery Cinema is back! Join us for a Saturday afternoon matinee series aimed at all ages. This season, we’re re-screening crowd favourites from the past five years at Remai Modern.
In Taliban-controlled Kabul, women and girls are not permitted to leave the house unescorted, to earn money, or to shop for food and supplies in the market. When Parvana’s father, a teacher, is unfairly imprisoned, she must disguise herself as a boy to become her family’s sole breadwinner. Showing courage and perseverance, Parvana does anything she can to support her family, while trying desperately to help free her father.
