About the Film

a documentary film by
Vangelis Kalambakas

Within the confines of a Christian orphanage in Ethiopia, we witness the daily activities of its little inmates. About fifty children of all ages, from infants to adolescents, are taken care of by nannies, nurses and volunteers, while initiated to stringent religious education. The film explores the complex character of this unique community, based solely on observation, without the aid of commentary or interviews. We focus on the interaction between the staff and the children, the relationships among the children themselves, their perception of otherness, as well as the overpowering influence that religion has on daily life and education in this special "home" away from home.
