Both released in 2019, they were part of the Un certain regard official selection at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. One is the adaptation of a novel bearing the same name, and the other is inspired from a tale by Dino Buzzati.

The youngest will have the opportunity to discover cinema through the shorts selection Jeux et petites bêtises.

Kabul under Taliban rule. Two neighborhoods and two couples. One conservative – Atiq and Mussarat have been married for 20 years and are deeply engrained in the traditions of Afghan life. One modern – young and in love, Zunaira and Mohsen are against all the same traditions. One day, a stoning. Then an act of humiliation. Then a fight… and life takes an irrevocable turn.
