40 years ago, an illiterate Ethiopian farmer created his own heaven on earth, based on equality and freedom from organized religions. He was driven by a belief that there is a way out of poverty, hunger and inequality, simply by working hard, reversing traditional values and getting rid of lengthy religious practices. This is the story of his brainchild, Awra Amba: a remarkable, rural weaving community in the Amhara Region in Northern Ethiopia. It is a story of belief in a better, more equal world where humans don’t have to suffer, but live in peace and harmony. "Awra Amba" is a beautiful, observational film that shows a different side to development and Africa, told through the voices of a group of independent, intelligent and philosophical people who have figured out a better way to live.
