CRUMBS, a surreal post-apocalyptic film from Ethiopia


They had me at the bowling alley. I’ll probably watch this at home, but I hope it comes to the local indie theater. This seems like a film best watched in a dark theater on a big screen.

One unintended side effect of international films is their ability to challenge preconceptions about a place. Ethiopia always calls up images in my mind of deserts and waste. Consciously I know it’s not all like that, but the lush greenery that Gagano sets off through is surprisingly beautiful.


@ 1:35 Michael Jackson’s Dangerous in orbit. (Spiritualized would have been a little too on-the-nose.)

I will be looking out for this one!
