Horizon Beautiful, the movie we will be showing at our fundraiser, is about Admassu, a twelve year old homeless boy, who dreams of becoming a futbol star. When he hears that a Swiss futbol industry magnate is coming to Ethiopia, Admassu goes to great lengths to try and impress him but nothing goes as planned.
The story is fiction but believable. Henock Tadele, who plays Admassu, lived and worked on the streets of Addis Ababa, and was unable to speak any English before the movie was made. Stefan Gubser, a futbol magnate, is one of the most famous Swiss actors.
The movie is for families and appropriate for ALL ages.
Please come and see this wonderful movie and make our fundraiser a success.
