(Car­toon Saloon, Air­craft Pic­tures, Guru Stu­dio, Jolie Pas, Ir­ish Film Board, Melu­sine Pro­duc­tions, Tele­film Canada | GKIDS) Di­rec­tor: Nora Twomey Re­lease Date: Novem­ber 17, 2017 Syn­op­sis: This beau­ti­fully an­i­mated film cen­ters on a brave Afghan girl named Par­vana, who is forced to as­sume a male iden­tity in or­der to gain em­ploy­ment to sup­port her fam­ily, after the wrong­ful ar­rest of her fa­ther by the Tal­iban. Based on the award-win­ning book by Deb­o­rah El­lis. The Word: “The an­i­mated film…grap­ples with vi­o­lence and other abuses in­flicted on women by the Tal­iban. There’s room for hu­mor, too, es­pe­cially within the mag­i­cal sto­ries Par­vana nar­rates, a com­ple­men­tary sto­ry­line ren­dered with breath­tak­ing im­agery and pack­ing an emo­tional gut punch.” – Rad­heyan Si­mon­pil­lai, NOW. Nom­i­na­tion Chances: Mem­o­ries of the nom­i­na­tion for 2007’s Perse­po­lis might be enough to garner one here, not to men­tion the emo­tional power of the film and the breath-tak­ing 2D an­i­ma­tion. Pro­duc­ing stu­dio Car­toon Saloon (Ire­land) has re­ceived noms for its two pre­vi­ous ef­forts The Se­cret of Kells and Song of the Sea. Of course, the fact that An­gelina Jolie is the film’s pro­ducer is an added bonus.
