Jessica Beshir — USAQatarEthiopia — 2021 — 120'

Khat is an ancient drug used by the people of Africa and the Middle East, who would chew the leaves as a means for religious mediation. Nowadays, it plays a crucial role in Ethiopia’s economy as its main export. Through a personal story, a hypnotic documentary made of soundscapes and textures shaped by sunlight, document’s Khat’s footprint on a nation surrendered to its euphoric hallucinations.
