Jessica Beshir’s hypnotic, immersive and very beautiful documentary marks an impressive feature debut.

Leaving a traditional narrative structure in the dust, Beshir uses breathtaking cinematography to bring you into the Horn of Africa. The movie is moving poetry about the struggles in khat fields and Ethiopia itself.
