Inhalt

Beti and Amare

"Beti and Amare" is a strangely engaging and genre-blurring piece of cinema, part fantasy sci-fi, part historical romantic drama. Set in 1936 in an Ethiopia disrupted by World War 2, it follows Beti, a young Ethiopian girl who flees Mussolini’s troops to the more peaceful south of the country. As the enemy moves closer and her situation reaches a crisis, an unexpected arrival from the sky irrevocably changes the course of her existence. Alternating between dreamlike and nightmarish, this low-budget but innovative film makes stunning use of technique and powerful imagery for an intensely visual experience.
