coming home to boon

Feven Ghebremariam | 2013 | O.V. Tigrinya | S.T. English | Québec/Canada | 5min | color

Synopsis :

Every day, Abrehet preparescoffee (boon) in the ceremonial Eritrean style. This ritual illustrates the need to hold on to tradition in order to survive culture shock after arriving in a new country. A film that gracefully explores the simple but precise customs used to preserve memory.

Ailleurs ( 8 films )

All of these films ultimately deal with exile, whether internal or external, while paying close attention to the characters’ gestures, faces and less often, their words. A strange interplay between strength and fragility emerges.
