This odd, amusing, experimental film is (rather unsurprisingly) the first post-apocalyptic sci-fi feature to emerge from Ethiopia. It tracks a family man on a hero's journey to board calamity-causing spaceships orbiting around the Earth by traveling to the North Pole to meet Santa. This pop culture-littered exercise in surrealism recalls the work of Russian master filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky (Solaris, Stalker) as filtered through a no-budget Afropop sensibility. Unique, to say the least. In Amharic and Afrikaans with English subtitles. 68 minutes Unrated.
