Amharic with English subtitles
Part of the Take One Action Film Festival Season
Asalif is a young Ethiopian boy whose life has been upended by the socio-economic developments that are reshaping his home city, his country and his future. With dream-like poetry and stunning cinematography, Anbessa brings Asalif’s inner world of childhood adventures to life, in the shadow of rapid urbanisation.
Presented in association with Mercy Corps.
Screening with Dulce (Guille Isa & Angello Faccini | USA, Colombia | 2018 | 11 min)
BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us after the film to explore sustainable economic development and how planning policy can help ensure subsistence farmers (like Asalif’s family) can coexist with growing urban populations and continue to enjoy a life characterised by proximity to nature, and rooted in community. We will be joined by guests including representatives from Mercy Corps.
