    As an exploration of where one belongs and what are people’s roles in society (Ephraim likes to cook, something considered women’s work) this film gives us a great deal to think about. I’d be very curious how the film was received in Ethiopia where the society is in the middle of changing.

    Brooklyn-based KimStim has acquired distribution rights to the film in the U.S. and plans a theatrical release in Spring 2016.

    A brilliant drama about an Ethiopian boy and his pet sheep, Lamb became the first Ethiopian film to be screened at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival as an “Official Selection,” and won “Best Feature Film” at the 2015 Milan Film Festival.
