The 39th Portland International Film Festival: LAMB

lamb

Set against the magnificent mountains of southern Ethiopia, Lamb is heartwarming and visually stunning coming-of-age fable about a boy learning to come to terms with profound loss. After the death of his mother, nine-year-old Ephraim is taken from his drought-stricken home and placed in the care of his uncle, a hard-working peasant farmer. Ephraim and his pet sheep Chuni are inseparable, spending all their time playing together. When he learns that Chuni will be sacrificially slaughtered at the next religious feast, Ephraim decides that he must take drastic action to save his only friend, even if that means returning home. (94 mins.)
