Description & Features+
This beautiful graphic-novel adaptation of The Breadwinner animated film tells the story of eleven-year-old Parvana who must disguise herself as a boy to support her family during the Taliban?s rule in Afghanistan.
Parvana lives with her family in one room of a bombed-out apartment building in Kabul, Afghanistan?s capital city. Parvana?s father ? a history teacher until his school was bombed and his health destroyed ? works from a blanket on the ground in the marketplace, reading letters for people who cannot read or write. One day, he is arrested for having forbidden books, and the family is left without someone who can earn money or even shop for food.
As conditions for the family grow desperate, only one solution emerges. Forbidden to earn money as a girl, Parvana must transform herself into a boy, and become the breadwinner.
Deborah Ellis?s beloved novel has been adapted for film by Aircraft Pictures, Cartoon Saloon and Melusine Productions in association with Angelina Jolie?s production company, jolie pas productions. The animated feature film, directed by Nora Twomey, will launch at festivals in fall 2017, with wide release in late fall 2017.
