New interview with Angie and Nora Twomey for the website Deadline, published on February 21st. You can read the full interview in our press archive as usual!
Seeing her latest directorial outing, First They Killed My Father, selected as the Cambodian entry this year for Best Foreign Language Film, humanitarian and Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie has also been making the rounds of late in support of The Breadwinner, Nora Twomey’s Oscar-nominated animated feature, which she produced.
Based on a best-selling novel by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvana, a young Afghan girl whose father is sent to prison, and must then dress as a boy to provide for her family. A reminder of Jolie’s deep concern for women and children around the world—particularly in war-torn countries—Twomey’s film is consistent with a mission Jolie embarked on decades ago, as she set out to attend to women and children, immigrants and refugees, through channels both legislative and narrative.
Here is magazine scans of Angelina from Paris Match and Deadline and you can also read the new IndieWire interview which was published today, in the press archive. Enjoy the read!
