Apple Lands Cannes Doc ‘Bread & Roses’

EXCLUSIVE: Apple Original Films has landed the global rights to new feature documentary Bread & Roses, the acclaimed Cannes Film Festival selection, and Cannes Golden Eye nominee, revealing the powerful resistance of Afghan women against the Taliban. The film is produced by Excellent Cadaver’s Jennifer Lawrence and Justine Ciarrocchi, alongside Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights advocate and executive producer Malala Yousafzai’s Extracurricular and renowned director Sahra Mani A Thousand Girls Like Me.

Sahra Mani directs the film. Following its celebrated debut at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, the doc is set to premiere globally on Apple TV+ on June 21.

The doc revolves around “Closing girls’ schools in Afghanistan is not just a matter of feminist concern; rather, it is a matter of international security. The Taliban recognizes that the children of educated mothers are difficult to indoctrinate, and are less susceptible to becoming their future soldiers,” said director and producer Sahra Mani. “Ensuring that girls’ schools remain open in Afghanistan is crucial for the preservation and safety of our entire world.”

Bread & Roses offers a powerful window into the seismic impact on women’s rights and livelihoods after Kabul fell to the Taliban in 2021. The film follows three women, in real time, as they fight to recover their autonomy. Mani captures the spirit and resilience of Afghan women through a raw depiction of their harrowing plight.

LBI brokered the deal on behalf of Excellent Cadaver.
