Animation Night 2018:
Meet Cartoon Saloon
Our legendary animation night takes you on a journey behind the scenes of one of the most famous Irish animation companies – Cartoon Saloon. The company’s head of animation Fabian Erlinghäuser who has been working for Cartoon Saloon for more than 18 years, will present the studio, the team and their way of making films, among them their first feature The Secret of Kells that was nominated for an Academy Award.
After the presentation, we will screen the latest Cartoon Saloon production The Breadwinner about a young girl in Kabul that has to become a boy to rescue her father and her family in the difficult times of the Taliban.
The heroine of this animated feature film is called Parvana. She’s eleven years old and lives with her family in a tiny flat in the Afghan city of Kabul. The Taliban dictate the law. And they dictate that Parvana’s father, a man and therefore the only member of the family allowed to be active, must be arrested. So how and where to organise the money to survive when the breadwinner is in prison? Parvana decides to masquerade as a boy …
The Breadwinner is based on the young adult novel by Canadian author Deborah Ellis and received a nomination for the Oscars 2018.
Tickets for the double feature (presentation and film) are now available online in our Filmfinder and from 26 October at our DOK ticket counters. We will show the film in its English version (without subtitles).
