ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST ANIMATED FEATURE! WINNER: BEST ANIMATED FEATURE!

--Los Angeles Film Critics BEST MOTION PICTURE NOMINEE! --Canadian Screen Awards

A hand-drawn animated gem, based on the 2000 children’s novel by Canada’s Deborah Ellis. In the Taliban-ruled Kabul, women are second-class citizens, forbidden to walk around unescorted, let alone get a job. That’s a problem for a family when its story-telling patriarch is unjustly thrown in jail. Saving the day is 11-year-old Parvana, who cuts her hair and poses as a boy to provide for her mother and siblings. The feature is about loyalty, perseverance and the power of imagination. Jeff Danna and Mychael Danna provide the music. The picture sings and inspires. –The Globe and Mail

“A glorious demonstration of the power of myth to deal with brutal reality, and the power of truth to animate myth.” The Wrap
“A well-crafted and inspiring story with an important message about female empowerment.”  Toronto Star
Cast Saara Chaudry, Soma Chhaya, Noorin Gulamgaus
