A film by
The Screen Worlds collective


Told by those who live off and give life to Ethiopian cinema, this is the previously unseen story of Addis Ababa's astounding recent boom in filmmaking and cinema-going, and all the passions and frustrations that attend these endeavours. The first documentary ever made on Ethiopian Cinema. In the heart of Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, an Azmari and his musical compositions guide us through a film week held in the city’s oldest cinemas as film professionals gather over coffee to debate the state of cinema in the country.
