MADE IN ETHIOPIA


Xinyan Yu & Max Duncan | United States/Ethiopia | 2024 | 93 min


“It’s just like China used to be”, says a Chinese businessman surveying a massive clothing factory in a sprawling industrial park in rural Ethiopia, where a dusty farming town finds itself on the frontier of globalisation. The park’s formidable Chinese director needs every bit of her considerable charm to push through an expansion that will deliver 30,000 new jobs but will also displace the local community. Meanwhile, Workinesh, a local farmer,  and Beti, a factory worker, have staked their futures on the promise of prosperity. Filmed over four years, Made in Ethiopia explores China’s historic but misunderstood impact on Africa.
