Summer 1998 - Kabul in ruins under Taliban rule. Zunaira and Mohsen are young and in love. Despite the daily violence and misery, they hope for a better future. One day, a foolish gesture causes their lives to take an irrevocable turn.

 

"The Swallows of Kabul" is a critically acclaimed 2019 animated film directed by Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobé Mévellec, capturing the poetry of Algerian author Yasmina Khadra’s 2002 novel of the same name. The graphically rich, 2-D watercolour style animation portrays the stories of two couples living under Taliban rule in Kabul in the nineties and the ways their fates become intertwined by a dangerous act of humanity.

 

There will be a live Zoom Q&A with the film's director, Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec, after the screening.
