FATUMA AND ASYA – TWO AFAR GIRLS IN ETHIOPIA
Francesco Sincich | Ethiopia, Italy 2014 | 59 Min. | OmeU
Fatuma und Asyatells the story of two young girls and how they are facing hard challenges in their young lives: avoiding the mandatory marriage for Fatuma, and the conflict with the Somali Issa and the livestock’s theft for Asya. Fatuma (10) and Asya (13) grow up in two different Afar Communities – nomadic families in northeast Ethiopia. The film shows without the usual traditionalism the reality of two Teenager, who introduce us to their everyday life with their own naïve and childish view. An insight into Ethiopia we have not often seen.
