Affectionate Care

Tselote, an Ethiopian woman in her thirties, lives abroad, far from home. She has adapted to this new and foreign environment and finds herself in a comfortable home. However, a cat and plants are her only companions in this space. Photographs speak of the family far away.

Tselote struggles with her maternal wish to carry a child and with the pressure that is sent along from the Horn of Africa, two variables that seem to go hand in hand. This short film captures an intimate portrait of Tselote’s every day, but it speaks of the struggles that can arise living abroad: Cultural pressure and personal pain are captured in a calm and nurturing environment.
