US Theatrical Premiere! Ethiopian-Israeli director Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian draws on her own experience of growing up in war-torn Addis Ababa. Sixteen-year-old Mina is poised to flee Ethiopia with her grandmother to be reunited with her mother in Israel; however, she is reluctant to leave her Christian boyfriend Eli, who lives in the woods in order to avoid forcible conscription by the military. Grounded by remarkable performances, Fig Tree is a moving coming-of-age story and an auspicious feature film debut. November 1-3 screenings followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian.
