KLIK - The Art of Nora Twomey

Nora Twomey is an Irish animator and the co-founder of the revered animation studio Cartoon Saloon.

Twomey's first solo feature, The Breadwinner (2017), is set in Kabul in 2001 and follows a young girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family after her father is arrested by the Taliban. The film marks another Oscar nod for Nora, making it onto this year’s shortlist for best animated film.
