Based on the best-selling children's novel by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner tells the story of 11 year old Parvana who gives up her identity to provide for her family and try to save her father's life. Parvana's father Nurullah had told stories about history and imagination to Parvana as she helped him in the marketplace of Taliban controlled Kabul in the year 2001. When he is arrested Parvana finds the courage to look for him when everyone else had given up hope. She becomes a storyteller, remembering a brother she has once known. Every day is a challenge as Parvana tries to bring home enough food and water to support her mother, sister and little brother. She meets a fellow girl in disguise called Shauzia and together, they form a bond that will give them the strength to endure the war that comes to their doorstep in the Fall of 2001. The Breadwinner is a celebration of children - for children, whatever their age, wherever they live.
The Breadwinner is a co-production between Canada, Luxembourg and Ireland, and had its world premiere at Toronto's TIFF 2017. Directed by Nora Twomey, co-produced by Tomm Moore and Angelina Jolie.

From director Makoto Shinkai, the innovative mind behind Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second, comes a beautiful masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls. The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works.
Makoto Shinkai has long been an Anilogue audience favourite for his eloquent visual style and captivating storytelling. His latest masterpiece, Your Name, is the ever most viewed motion picture in Japan, even surpassing Miyazaki's classic Spirited Away. Your Name is finally on the silver screen in Budapest.
