Afghanistan / Canada / 2017 / 88 minutes / DCP / Color

Arian adores kites. But the young daydreamer’s talent is curtailed when the Taliban takes power and bans kite flying. When the moonlight is faintest, Arian and his daughter find solace and strength in the clandestine act of kite flying – “the highest crime,” which may cause him his life. While reminiscent of The Kite Runner (2007), Black Kite takes an eclectic approach in telling a profound parable against oppression, in a land of seismic political shifts and dissipating hope. Screening with The Hooligan Soul (15min).
