Documentary Screening (DC)

For many generations people in the Omo Valley (southwest Ethiopia) believed some children are cursed and that these ‘cursed’ children bring disease, drought and death to the tribe. The curse is called ‘mingi’ and mingi children are killed.

Lale Labuko, a young educated man from the Kara, was 15 years old when he saw a child in his village killed and also learned that he had 2 older sisters he never knew who had been killed. He decided one day he would stop this horrific practice.

Filmed over a five year period, the film follows Lale’s journey along with the people of his tribe as they attempt to change an ancient practice.
