"In the end, there was no need to extend the war. The elderly passed on and the young became elderly." Lucius Walter de Mendoza -History written for no one
Crumbs, Ethiopia's first surreal sci-fi, clings pop-culture to its post-apocalyptic wonderworld.
Shot on location in Ethiopia, Crumbs is set in a world wrecked after a war which we are unsure of how it began and ended. Inhabitants of the Earth worship "old world" miracles like Michael Jordan, Madonna, Einstein, Justin Bieber and swing their plastic swords which are remnants of the last "big artist", Carrefour. We accompany Candy (Daniel Tadesse), who is tired of living on an earth filled with crumbs of the old world, on his journey to the planet he believes he came from. The film offers a fresh new take on the much accustomed dream of a dark post-apocalyptic world with its inclusions of pop culture icons. A true jewel for sci-fi fans, Crumbs is a must see for all pop culture enthusiasts and overall dreamers.
