THE SWALLOWS OF KABUL (subtitled in English)

Presented in original French version subtitled in English.

14 years old and up

Late 1990s. The 1000 year-old city of Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, lies in smoking ruins, occupied by the Taliban. Fear grips the residents as armed zealots roam – the University is destroyed, women are violated in the street, public executions precede soccer matches in the stadium and atrocities rule. In the midst of this daily violence and misery where joy and laughter are suspect, Mohsen and Zunaira, married and in love, dream of freedom. But their life is about to change forever… First-time co-directors Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec succeed in adapting Yasmina Khadra’s excellent best-selling novel into a dazzling and prize-winning animation feature film.
