Anbessa image

Anbessa (PG)

Human Rights Watch Film Festival


The biggest condominium complex in East Africa, on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, promises thousands of people a better way of life. It’s being constructed, however, on the farmland of 10-year-old Asalif and his mother, leaving them just a tool shed with no electricity or running water. Anbessa is a lyrical documentary that takes us on a journey of childhood adventuring and magical realism as we accompany a creative, sensitive and bold young boy using his imagination and sharp wits to battle forces beyond his control, and escape the stark reality of displacement. Meanwhile, the city is growing around them and new property developers are knocking at their door.

Official Selection, Berlinale International Film Festival 2019, Nominee Crystal Bear, Generation Kplus - Best Film

SAF (15)

Human Rights Watch Film Festival


In the Fikirtepe district of Istanbul, Kamil and his wife Remziye are at risk of losing their home. Urban transformation is pushing out local families and Syrian refugees are left to take shelter in the deserted buildings. Desperately in need of work, Kamil decides to secretly accept a construction job, working for the very company taking over their neighbourhood, displacing a Syrian refugee from the position and agreeing to work for less than other Turkish workers. Fearing both discovery and failure, Kamil’s anxiety gradually transforms him, and Remziye is left to face the consequences of her husband’s unrecognizable actions.
