Bread & Roses on Apple TV+ for 21 June

Bread & Roses on Apple TV+ – Apple Original Films today announced that it 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 (“Causeway”) Jennifer Lawrence and Justine Ciarrocchi, alongside Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights advocate and executive producer Malala Yousafzai’s (“Joyland”) Extracurricular and renowned director Sahra Mani (“A Thousand Girls Like Me”).

Following its celebrated debut at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, “Bread & Roses” is set to premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, 21 June.

“Closing girls’ schools in Afghanistan is not just a matter of feminist concern; rather, it is a matter of international security. The Taliban recognises 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. 

“Bread & Roses,” an Eyan Foundation presentation in association with Extracurricular, is produced by Jennifer Lawrence and Justine Ciarrocchi with Sahra Mani, alongside executive producers Malala Yousafzai and Farhad Khosravi. Sahra Mani directs the film.

“Bread & Roses” joins the award-winning slate of Apple Original documentary films, including Academy Award winner Davis Guggenheim’s “STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie,” which recently swept the Critics Choice Documentary Awards with five wins, alongside four Emmy Awards; Emmy Award-nominated “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me,” a uniquely raw and intimate documentary spanning her six-year journey into a new light; a new upcoming documentary film about the groundbreaking life and career of seven-time Formula One world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton; and many more.
