Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas

Directed by Joakim Demmer
Sweden | 80 min. | Amharic, English (English subtitled)

Director Joakim Demmer was absolutely stunned when he saw this dreadful paradox at the airport in Ethopia: exhausted workers were loading food, intended for export to Europe, while another team was unloading imported food aid, intended for inland distribution. His bewilderment soon gave way to anger. Demmer was immensely frustrated and angry to witness the results and injustice of land grabbing, which is nothing less than a modern form of colonization.
