The Swallows of Kabul TBC

Tue 3 Dec, 6.30pm


Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Libyan writer Yasmina Khadra, Swallows of Kabul follows life under Taliban rule in the ruined Afghan capital across one summer in 1998.


Beautifully realised in watercolour-style animation, French directors Zabou and Éléa don’t flinch from portraying a regime that relentlessly and sadistically castigates women.
