FAYA DAYI

Ethiopia - Qatar - USA | 2021 | 120 min. | Documentary

Synopsis
The film is a journey into the highlands of Harari Region immersed in the rituals of khat, a leaf that Sufi Muslims chewed for religious meditations – and Ethiopia’s most lucrative cash crop today. Through the prism of the khat trade, the film weaves a tapestry of intimate stories of people caught between violent government repression, khat-induced fantasies and treacherous journeys beyond their borders, and offers a window into the dreams of the youth who long for a better life.
