v Kara s English


This film follows the events triggered by a young man's killing of a leopard with a self-made trap in Kara, Southern Ethiopia. Anthropologist Felix Girke and film-maker Steffen Köhn follow the protagonists as a social drama slowly emerges: during the feast which celebrates the hunter's achievement, a challenge as to the ownership of the precious hide is issued. The events of the film reveal how ritual rules are strategically manipulated and contested for not entirely evident reasons.
