The Films

Anbessa

Mo Scarpelli | Italy, US | 86

A brand new condominium has shot up in the Ethiopian countryside, pushing farmers off their land for the construction, promising thousands of others a “better” way of life. Anbessa follows one boy caught between the two as he navigates modernization on his own terms in order to survive in a brave new world.

The Orphan (O Órfão)

Carolina Markowicz | Brazil | 15

Jonathas has been adopted but then returned due to his 'different' way. Inspired by true events.

Performer

Haile Supreme

Haile Supreme is a conduit of ancient vocal techniques. Equipped with a golden voice, mind-bending effects, and a cool command of shamanic showmanship, Supreme has the ability to transport listeners to a different world with each passing note. Touring nonstop over the last 5 years with Congo Sanchez, a side project of Thievery Corporation that synthesizes latin funk, dub reggae and Hip-Hop, Haile has channeled his many influences to create a unique style of his own. Blending mystical blues, intergalactic jazz and the rub-a-dub spirit of roots reggae, Haile Supreme is a musical force to be reckoned with!
