A Weakness

Ethiopia,United States | 2017 | 16 min | English | Mo Scarpelli

One artist’s decision to speak out about the fraught, deadly situation in his country could cost him his life. A boy with big dreams. A nation in the midst of a suppressed revolt. A story of what it means to be caught up between your aspirations to speak openly, and the intense fear that your country will punish you for it. Through careful observation of a hip hop artist at the forefront of Africa’s youth culture, the film explores how paranoia can alter, suppress or even dictate the path of a human life.
