A selection of the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Miguel Llanso's Crumbs
is - to put it mildly - a weird one. The Spanish born, Ethiopian based director has concocted here a post apocalyptic science fiction tale involving a slowly crumbling space ship, a bowling alley, neo Nazis, horsebound knights and, you know, Santa Claus, with all of it set in a desolate African landscape.
Decades after the apocalypse and after extraterrestrial life had been discovered the few inhabitants left in a hostile earth
have struggled to survive by squatting and rummaging to make ends meet.
For many years an alien spaceship has hovered in the skies, undisturbed
and dormant, slowly rusting away. Tired of picking up the crumbs of
gone-by civilizations, Gagano dreams his life away when not living in a
state of perpetual fear. When the spaceship in the sky begins to turn on
and after a series of freak incidents in the bowling alley that Gagano
and Selam call home, our miniature sized hero will be forced to embark
on a surreal epic journey that will lead him through the post
apocalyptic Ethiopian landscape. As he confronts himself, his fears as
well as witches, Santa Claus and second generation Nazis he will find
himself only to discover that the memories that brought him on his
journey and that he always thought he had were not really as he had been
