MENGED

A lot can happen in the Ethiopian countryside on the long way to the market. A father and his son follow everybody’s good advice…and come back to their senses. Menged an adaptation of a traditional folk tale is very much a parable for Ethiopia today: A country caught in between tradition and modernism. Winner of the “Crystal Bear” Award at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival and the “Golden Horse” for best short Film at FESPACO, Burkina Faso 2007.
