THE ETHIOPIAN EDUCATION FUND PRESENTS: LAMB

Doors 6:30pm / Film 7:00pm
Yared Zeleke’s remarkable feature debut tells the story of young Ephraim, a half-Jewish, Ethiopian boy who is sent by his father to live among distant relatives after his mother’s death. Ephraim uses his cooking skills to carve out a place among his cousins, but when his uncle decides that his beloved sheep must be sacrificed for the next religious feast, he will do anything to save the animal and return home. Drawing amazing performances from his cast of professional and non-professional actors, first-time filmmaker Yared Zeleke tells his deceptively simple story with a refreshing honesty and naturalness. Beautifully shot against the majestic backdrop of Ethiopia’s southern mountains, Lamb is an affecting tale about what people will risk in order to take charge of their own destinies.
Dir: Yared Zeleke / 2015 / Ethiopia-France-Germany-Norway-Qatar / 94 min
The Ethiopian Education Fund enables disadvantaged youth and young adults in the rural Kaffa zone of southern Ethiopia, to realize their educational potential. EEF is a non-profit organization which, since 2005, has been providing scholarships to youth, especially girls, to attend primary, secondary, and post-secondary school. We believe that education is the key to achieve success at multiple levels in the student’s life, the life of the family, and in the community. Even one more year of education will statistically raise the student’s standard of living and well-being. ethiopianeducationfund.org
SCREENING: SUN 4/16 7PM
Patrons, performers, staff, and volunteers are no longer required to wear masks or show proof of vaccination. The threat of covid, seasonal flu, and respiratory viruses are still out there. OFS will continue to provide masks (while supplies last – we have tons), surface and hand sanitizer, and regular air filtration system maintenance. We encourage mask-wearing at concerts and indoor gatherings and keep snacking and drinking in seating areas only.
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home to avoid spreading COVID-19 to others. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you call out for your volunteer, stay at home, and come back when you feel better to minimize the spread and to help keep others at the theater healthy and keep our operations going.
