In grandiose wide opening shots, slow panoramas, and concise static compositions, Daniel Kötter explores the landscape east of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. He focused his attention on four urbanizing areas, in which the boundaries between urban and rural, between industry and agriculture are blurring. The film also gives us an insight into the private lives of the locals. Their off-screen comments help create a layered portrait of a place undergoing drastic ecological and social changes - for which many are not prepared.
