The film is set against the background of spectacular post-apocalyptic Ethiopian landscapes, where the film finds a strange-looking scrap collector, Gagano. Alternately gripped by daydreams and constant fears, the diminutive Gagano has had enough of collecting the priceless crumbs of decayed civilization, including the most valuable: merchandise from Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan. When a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky for years starts showing signs of activity, Gagano has to overcome his fears--as well as a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis--to discover things aren't quite the way he thought. This film from Ethiopia is directed by Miguel Llansó, unrated, and 68 minutes. Chigger Ale (11 minutes) and Night in the Wild Garden (7 minutes), two short films by the director will also be screened.Return to previous page >>
