Film Africa Presents: I Will Not Bear Tomorrow
3 November 2017 - 7:00 pm

EUROPEAN PREMIERE

Dir. Abraham Gezahegne

Ethiopia. 2016. 117 mins. Amharic with English subtitles.

At a time of round-the-clock curfews, government surveillance, and streets littered with the bodies of ‘anti-revolutionaries’, Adugna (played by veteran journalist Berhanu Degafe) vehemently struggles to maintain some normality and train his football team. When the team’s rising stars are put under surveillance, Adugna’s wife pleads with him to quit his passion and conform, but he knows this would mean forcible recruitment into the government-approved security force. Based on the book by sports journalist Genene Mekuria, Abraham Gezahegne’s film depicts one of Ethiopia’s darkest moments and uses football as a beacon of hope and distraction from fear of the Qey Shibir (Red Terror) of 1977-78.

Followed by a post-screening discussion with director Abraham Gezahegne.
