Still from The Breadwinner: animated characters seated and kneeling on the floor of a dim room by a daylit window

The Breadwinner

Rendezvous With Madness Festival

Nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Animated Feature Film, The Breadwinner follows an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. When her father is wrongfully arrested, she cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner is an inspiring and luminously animated tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times.

94 minutes.
