FILMing Disappearing Spaces.

Informal settlements in Addis Ababa disappear very quickly from the city map.Why do their inhabitants don’t want to move from those tiny houses to the newly build condominiums? The movie is our research on this phenomenon.

I confess – I am fascinated with Addis’ SLUM, which is so much not like the ones I have seen in Rio or Shanghai. Here, instead of a “cradle of violence and pathology”, we experience a day with a kind and hospitable society. Majority work or study, all have dreams, plans, which very often come true. 24h, a day with a typical family from a tiny housing unit, called “Kebele”, not only gave a lot to think about but also stared the whole research series with a similar scheme.
