The CSJ Center for Reconciliation & Justice invites you to this Justice and Spirituality on Screen discussion of The Breadwinner, a 2017 animated feature film directed by Nora Twomey and produced by Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon, based on the novel by Deborah Ellis.

The CSJ Center's Justice and Spirituality on Screen series engages questions of faith and culture through the lens of modern cinema.  It is cosponsored by the LMU School of Film and Television, Center for Religion and Spirituality, and William H. Hannon Library. The 2021-2022 series theme echoes that of the CSJ Center's annual symposium, Faces of Justice.
