Presented as part of the 25th Annual Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival.

Set in Addis Ababa in 1989, Fig Tree follows a teenage girl's harrowing coming of age. Mina is 16 years old and the Ethiopian Civil War has been underway her entire life. She lives with her brother and grandmother in a humble house with newsprint for wallpaper. The family is Jewish and is planning to flee Ethiopia for Israel, where Mina's mother awaits their reunion. But this plan leaves out the person Mina loves most: Eli, her Christian boyfriend, who lives in the woods so as to evade being drafted into Mengistu Haile Mariam's army. Mina hatches a scheme to save Eli, but everyone and everything seems set against her.

Directed by Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian | 2018 | Drama | Amharic with English subtitles | 93 minutes

Post Film Speaker
Josef Woldense, Assistant Professor in the African American & African Studies Department and is an Affiliated Faculty in Political Science at the University of Minnesota
