The plot

Ethiopia / 80’ / HD

In February 1937, Italy’s Fascist occupying forces slaughtered 20,000 civilians in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa. In a brilliant piece of forensic historical reconstruction this documentary rescues from obscurity this episode of colonial mass extermination by giving voice to the residents of Ethiopia.
