Set against the backdrop of the Ethiopian Civil War in the late 1980s, Fig Tree is a remarkable debut film from Ethiopian-Israeli writer-director Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian. The Jewish family of 16-year-old Mina is planning to flee Ethiopia for Israel, but Mina won’t leave until she rescues her Christian boyfriend Eli from being forcibly drafted into Mengistu Haile Mariam's army. Inspired by Davidian’s memories of war-worn Ethiopia, Fig Tree is a lyrical and moving reflection on the power of first love, and the terror of war.
