We proudly present ‘The Swallows of Kabul’. This gorgeous animation will be screening at Kaboom Animation Festival 2019 in Amsterdam & Utrecht, but we’re giving you a fancy chance to be the first to feast your eyes upon this beauty.

Summer 1998, Kabul in ruins is occupied by the Taliban. In love despite the daily violence and misery, Mohsen and Zunaira want to believe in the future. But a senseless act by Mohsen will upset their lives forever.

A beautiful and compelling animation about love and courage in times of repression. The film by Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec after the international bestseller of the same name by Yasmina Khadra was selected for Un Certain Regard in Cannes this year.

This presentation is a collab with Imagine Filmdistributie & Het Ketelhuis
