Life on the Horn

Short Film, AT/DE/SO 2020, digital, 25 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 4

The coast of Somalia is the setting for this pervasive film shaped by concise black-and-white tableaus: a young man takes care of his dying father in the midst of a deadly environment. Toxic waste has been stored on the Horn of Africa for decades. Using very few words and with great sensitivity, director Mo Harawe tells of the dissolution of existence and meaningfulness.
