Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of Anbessa, a stunning account of childhood adventures in the shaow of rapid urbanisation in Ethiopia.
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
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 to life Asalif’s inner world of childhood adventures, in the shadow of rapid urbanisation.
