Next Portishead Film screening announced
PUBLISHED: 17:00 26 February 2019
An Oscar-nominated film will be screened at the next Portishead Film event.
The Breadwinner will be shown on Friday evening at Jubilee Hall, in Slade Road.
Set in Afghanistan in 2001 during Taliban rule, the film tells the story of 11-year-old Parvana on the streets with her father, Nurullah, a schoolteacher and storyteller who lost his leg in the war.
Although Taliban rule is coming to an end, it does not stop certain aggressive members from unreasonably arresting Nurullah and throwing him into prison.
The duo are busy trying to sell family possessions to raise money for food.
But when her father is captured, the determined Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to provide for her family.
The Breadwinner was named best animated feature film at last year’s Academy Awards.
Doors open 7.30pm for a 8pm start.
Tickets, priced £5, are available on the night.
