Based on the eponymous novel by Yasmina Khadra and directed as an animated drama by Zabou Breitman and Éléa Gobbé-Mévellec , The Swallows of Kabul portrays life under Taliban control in the Afghan capital. Violence is neither fetishised nor sanitised. The directors portray a regime that relentlessly and sadistically castigates females and suggests that women are less worthy than men and is even more heartbreakingly pertinent under current circumstances.

Voice Cast Hiam Abbass, Simon Abarian, Swann Arlaud, Zita Henrot
