LAMB (2015) | Yared Zeleke | 94 min

LAMB is the first film from Ethiopia to be included in the Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival and the country's entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar.

This remarkable feature debut tells the story of young Ephraim, a half-Jewish, Ethiopian boy who is sent by his father to live among distant relatives after his mother's death. Ephraim uses his cooking skills to carve out a place among his cousins, but when his uncle decides that his beloved sheep must be sacrificed for the next religious feast, he will do anything to save the animal and return home.
