The Swallows of Kabul

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.

Critically embraced after its Un Certain Regard screening in Cannes, Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec’s harrowing story of two Afghani couples living under the shadow of the Taliban (based on the novel by Yasmina Khadra) has enjoyed universal acclaim on the festival circuit.

The film opens at Laemmle Glendale Theatre on November 8th.
