THE BREADWINNER

Rated PG-13

2017, 94 minutes

“From executive producer Angelina Jolie and the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, comes the Academy Award®-nominated feature based on Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel. Parvana is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, Parvana discovers a new world of freedom–and danger. With undaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from the fantastical stories she invents, as she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite 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.” – GKids

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

• THE WIND RISES/KAZE TACHINU (Miyazaki, 2013, Rated PG-13, 126 minutes) ~ Special selection at the 40th Telluride Film Festival.

Hiyao Miyazaki’s final animated masterpiece is based on Jiro Horikoshi, a real Japanese historical figure who was responsible for creating the infamous and lethal “Zero” fighter during the first years of WWII. The film follows Jiro from a young boy in a provincial Japanese town who dreams of flying airplanes, through his journey as a sought after aeronautical engineer, and through the heartbreak surrounding the sweet love of his life.

“To see THE WIND RISES is to simultaneously marvel at the work of a master and regret that this film is likely his last,” wrote the LA Times, “Always determined to tell his kind of stories his way, Miyazaki has returned to subject matter close to his heart — the joy and romance of airplanes and flight.”

These characters and critters in this collection of animated shorts are on the go! In one short, The Artist throws out two unfinished sketches, who become increasingly anxious about not being “completed”. In another film, an industrious beaver who is usually known as a rule follower, can’t seem to help out when it comes to building the. But since he is curious and kind, he figures out how to help in a different way entirely. In the final short, a girl has real potential to represent Hungary for the Olympics, but what does being an Olympian mean for the short and long term?
