Cinema

Directed by Nora Twomey | 2017 | Canada, Ireland, Luxembourg | With the voices of Saara Chaudry, Soma Chhaya, Laara Sadiq | 93mins | Certificate 12A

Exceptional animated film about a girl’s struggles in Afghanistan.

From the creators of The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea (and executive producer Angelina Jolie) comes this highly-anticipated new feature. Based on Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel, it was nominated for the Best Animated Feature Oscar.

Parvana (voiced by Saara Chaudry) is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001, whose family is cast into dire straits when her father is wrongfully imprisoned. In Taliban-controlled Kabul, women and girls are not permitted to leave the house unescorted, earn money or shop in the market. So the resourceful Parvana becomes the breadwinner, disguising herself as a boy to support her family.

Alongside her friend Shauzia (Soma Bhatia), she’s exposed to a world of new freedoms normally forbidden to her gender – as well as new dangers. Drawing courage from her imagination and the fantastical stories she invents, she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family.
