‘A Camel is Like a Mother’ Trailer

Funded through Wales Arts International’s International Opportunities Fund, Gaalli Haaddha (A Camel is Like a Mother) follows young Karrayyu boys as they leave their homes and families to embark on a 200 mile journey through Ethiopia to search for food for their camels.

The Karraayu, one of the last remaining Oromo groups to maintain the pastoralist way of life in Ethiopia’s beautiful Awash National Park, are having to rapidly adapt to multiple threats of shifting weather and migration patterns, acquisitions of their traditional lands by multinational organisations, and the struggle to preserve their culture and way of life in a world focused on rapid economic development.
