I WON'T BEAR NO MORE aka I WILL NOT BEAR TOMORROW

[YENEGEN ALWELDIM የነገን አልወልድም]
At a time of round-the-clock curfews, government surveillance and streets littered with the bodies of "anti-revolutionaries," Adugna (played by veteran journalist Berhanu Degafe) struggles to maintain some normality and train his football team. When the team's rising stars are put under surveillance, Adugna's wife pleads with him to quit his passion and conform, but he knows this would mean forcible recruitment into the government-approved security force. Based on the book by sports journalist Genene Mekuria, Abraham Gezahegne's (THE BEST MEN, THE SCENT OF LEMON) film depicts one of Ethiopia's darkest moments and uses football as a beacon of hope and distraction from the impounding fear of the Qey Shibir (Red Terror) of 1977–78. (Note adapted from Film Africa UK.) Official Selection, 2017 Film Africa UK. DIR/SCR/PROD Abraham Gezahegne, from the book by Genene Mekuria. Ethiopia, 2016, b&w, 118 min. In Amharic with English subtitles. NOT RATED
