The Swallows of Kabul (Les Hirondelles de Kaboul), dirs. Zabou Breitman & Eléa Gobbé-Mevellec, France / Luxembourg / Switzerland 2019, 82 min., Dari, French with English subtitles 



Summer 1998 – Kabul 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 life to take an irrevocable turn. 

French duo Zabou Breitman & Eléa Gobbé-Mevellec’s acclaimed work sadly feels more relevant than ever, and works as a reminder of the restrictions and arbitrary rules imposed by the Taliban.
