LAMB (2015)

Post-screening reception on March 11, made possible with support from Abol Ethiopian Cuisine

Yared Zeleke’s remarkable feature debut tells the story of young Ephraim, a half-Jewish Ethiopian boy who is sent by his father to live among distant relatives after his mother’s death. Ephraim uses his cooking skills to carve out a place among his cousins, but when his uncle decides that his beloved sheep must be sacrificed for the next religious feast, he will do anything to save the animal and return home. Beautifully shot against the majestic backdrop of Ethiopia's southern mountains, this is an affecting tale about what people will risk in order to take charge of their own destinies. 2015 Oscar® Selection, Ethiopia; Special Jury Prize, 2015 Denver Film Festival; Official Selection, 2015 Cannes, Toronto and London Film Festivals.
