Ethiopia: Cradle of Mankind


In November 2018, my friend and I traveled all over Ethiopia.

I had this film project in my mind since a long time. I always have been fascinated by human history and Ethiopia is probably one of the best location on earth regarding history of humanity.  During this trip, I realized how unbelievable this land is. This film, this story is not only about an old man telling his life but this is the story of a whole nation.

Across unbelievable landscapes such as active Erta Ale volcano, Danakil salt desert, Dalole sulfure springs, blue Nil waterfalls we met the kindest people I’ve ever met such as Amer, Mursi and Dorze tribes.
