Some boys see swans near a pond, and tell their disabled friend Rasoul about it. Rasoul believes that the story of birds that his grandmother has told him so many times will heal him. He then decides to go along with his friends to the pond.

The Summer of the Swans is one of twelve films picked by the programmers of the fifth edition of the New York Kurdish Film and Cultural Festival as part of a special feature on e-flux Video & Film, streaming for two weeks from October 7–21 and accompanied by a conversation between the festival’s founder Xeyal Qertel and e-flux’s Lukas Brasiskis. See the full program here.

The program is part of the series Festival Forum on e-flux Video & Film, presenting collaborations with established and emerging moving-image festivals from around the world.
