The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival: Omo Child: The River and the Bush (Documentary)
12pm - Omo Child: The River and the Bush (Documentary)
Directed by John Rowe
90 min

For many generations, the Kara people of the Omo Valley (southwest Ethiopia) believed some cursed children bring disease, drought and death to the tribe. The curse is called mingi.  The tribal response is to kill the Mingi. One young, educated Kara man, Lale Labuko, decided he would challenge this horrific tradition. This is his story. Omo Child is the result of five years of filming. It follows Lale and the Kara tribes journey as they attempt to change an ancient practice.  Immensely powerful and an utterly redemptive story, Omo Child represents the dedication of its director, John Rowe, to bring an important issue to light.
