Bread and Roses is directed by Afghan Sahra Mani and captures the experiences of her country women living under the Taliban since they took control of Kabul.

The film will later premiere as a special screening at the festival.

The arrival of the militant political movement in Kabul in 2021 had a disastrous effect on women’s rights in the country.

They were immediately stripped of any right to an education as well as limits on employment and their access to public spaces.

The tale of resilience is described as a ‘raw, un-sanitized depiction of the female plight in Afghanistan.’

It particularly focuses on three women, who endaour to recover their identity and autonomy as viewers see the experience through their eyes.

Director Mani fled Afghanistan when the Taliban took power in the summer of 2021 and is now living in Europe.

Elsewhere at the festival, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese were set for a victory lap after their crime epic, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’, scored rave reviews, while the festival prepared to bow down before Jude Law as King Henry VIII.

Scorsese’s latest opus, about a wave of murders among oil-rich Osage Indians in the 1920s, was showered in words like’searing’, ‘triumph’, and’masterpiece’ by critics who scored the Cannes Film Festival’s hottest ticket on Saturday night.

Based on a non-fiction bestseller, the film sees DiCaprio as a weak-willed man who marries a wealthy Osage woman and is drawn into the deadly schemes of his kingpin uncle, played by Scorsese’s other long-time muse, Robert De Niro.

IndieWire said DiCaprio gives ‘his best-ever performance’, while The Guardian awarded five stars for a’remarkable epic about the bloody birth of America’.

But the festival was already set for another glitzy premiere later in the day, with ‘Firebrand’ starring Jude Law as 16th-century English king Henry VIII alongside Alicia Vikander as his sixth and final wife, Catherine Parr.
