Tesfaye: Structured as a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, ተስፋዬ / Hope re-imagines the extraordinary life of an Ethiopian castaway refugee, rescued from the sea in Madagascar and now living in Toronto – caught between a nostalgia for his home country and the possibility of a better life in another one.
To experiment with alternative methods of film exhibition, this film is structured as a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony which is composed of three sections – ABOL, TONA, BEREKA. The film is also broken into three sections and screened in parallel with the ceremony. It is to be stopped at the end of each section for a refill of coffee and audience participation.
