INTRO & Q+A w/ DIRECTOR ELÉA GOBBÉ-MÉVELLEC

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.

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.
