    • Synopsis
    • "Beti and Amare" is a historical science-fiction film set in 1936 Ethiopia.
      Beti, a young Ethiopian girl has escaped Mussolini's troops and found refuge in the peaceful south of Ethiopia. As the Italians march ever closer Beti has to battle hunger, thirst, and the unwelcome sexual advances of the local militia. When the situation threatens to escalate towards the unthinkable, a spaceship cracks through the clouds... its cargo... love.

      This micro-budget gem is filled with many powerful moments made up of stunning, intense and thought provoking imagery, a unique but professional score and sound-design, and masterful acting.

      Up to now, "Beti and Amare" has inspired everyone who has seen it and we hope that it inspires you as well.
      The film has been completely self-funded. But as you will see the difficult journey towards its completion was definitely worth it.
