CINEMAGIC & QFT50 PRESENT:

Film Critic, broadcaster and journalist Mark Kermode returns to Cinemagic for his annual Film Night to introduce and discuss The Breadwinner, his 2018 festival pick!

Mark will be delving into what he sees as the current new “Golden Age” of animation, sharing his thoughts on the year’s new film releases and talking about the importance of independent and cultural cinema as QFT celebrates its 50th anniversary, all before answering questions from the audience!

THE BREADWINNER

Based on Deborah Ellis’ award-winning novel, director Nora Twomey’s The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.

Film Night host: Brian Henry Martin
