CANNES REPORT - ZELEKE'S LAMB


Lamb is the first Ethiopian feature to screen at the Cannes Film Festival in its history. Hooray! And better still, the film has drawn some fantastic responses out of attending journalists. Showing in Un Certain Regard, reviewers note Lamb's impressive visuals and director Yared Zeleke's inherent sensitivity toward the presentation of his native land within the film. It could be a contender for awards at tonight's prize-giving ceremony.
