Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.12.15] Ethiopia post apocalyptic scifi cult

A post-apocalyptic, surrealist science-fiction romance from Ethiopia is not something one comes across every day, but on November 3, IndiePix Films will release CRUMBS to DVD; its release on all digital platforms follows on November 17.

Currently in limited theatrical release and fresh off a highly acclaimed international festival run, director Miguel Llansó's fantastical fable, called "a rare and beautiful thing", continues to entrance audiences around the world.

About Crumbs:
Set against the background of spectacular, wild and desolate Ethiopian landscapes, CRUMBS introduces audiences to a strange-looking scrap collector, Gagano (played by the charismatic Daniel Tadesse). Alternately gripped by daydreams and constant fears, the diminutive Gagano has had enough of collecting the priceless crumbs of decayed civilization - Teenage Mutant Ninja amulets, toy ray guns and Superman costumes -- including the most valuable: merchandise from Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan.

Meanwhile, his true love, Birdy (Selam Tesfaye) pines for him in the abandoned bowling alley they've colonized. When a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky for years starts showing signs of activity, Gagano has to overcome his fears - as well as a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis -- to discover things aren't quite the way he thought.

We received a copy of Crumbs recently, so I hope to have a full review up soon. Until then, here's the first 7 minutes of the film and you can watch the film's trailer here.

Recommended Release: Zardoz
