Yared Zeleke with Lamb (France, Ethiopia, Germany, Norway, 2015, 94 min)
Set in the rolling mountains of Ethiopia, Lamb tells the story of young Ephraim, who is sent by his father to live among distant relatives after his mother’s death. When his uncle decides that his beloved sheep must be sacrificed for the next religious feast, Ephraim will do anything to save the animal and return home.
Lamb was the first film from Ethiopia to be included in the Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as the country’s entry for the Best Foreign Language-Film Oscar.
A collaboration with the School of Arts and Sciences's African Film and Media Pedagogy Seminar at Penn.
