The Breadwinner is a family movie you don’t see every day. It follows a young girl named Parvana, who lives in Afghanistan under the shadow of the Taliban. When her father is unfairly arrested, she chops her hair off and takes care of her family the only way she can under her circumstances: as a boy. Listen to our extended interview with director Nora Twomey.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
