Cartoon Saloon and Aircraft Pictures to Adapt The BreadWinner


Cartoon Saloon and Aircraft Pictures have recently entered into a partnership that will see the adaptation of Deborah Ellis’ award-winning novel The Breadwinner into animated film format. The film will be directed by Cartoon Saloon’s Nora Twomey, who has previously co-directed the Oscar-nominated animated feature The Secret of Kells and the award-winning shorts From Darkness and Cúilín Dualach (Backwards Boy)

The Breadwinner focuses on a young girl named Parvana, who is living under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and disguising herself as a boy in order to be the breadwinner of her family, after her father has been unfairly imprisoned for being an intellectual.

The screenplay is by Ellis and Anita Doron, whose credits include the feature films The End of Silence and The Lesser Blessed.
