Movie Info

Decades after the apocalypse and after extraterrestrial life has been discovered, the few inhabitants left in a hostile earth struggle to survive by squatting and rummaging to make ends meet. For many years, an alien spaceship has hovered in the skies, undisturbed and dormant, slowly rusting away. Tired of picking up the crumbs of gone-by civilizations, Gagano dreams of the day when he is not living in a state of perpetual fear. When the spaceship in the sky begins to turn on, and after a series of freak incidents in the bowling alley that Gagano and Selam call home, our miniature sized hero will be forced to embark on a surreal epic journey through this post apocalyptic Ethiopian landscape. As Gagano grapples with his fears, witches, Santa Claus and second generation Nazis, he discovers the memories that lead him on this journey might not be real.

It's hard not to succumb at least somewhat to this sci-fi whatsit's strange, whimsical spell.

The culmination of a risky exploration process with an aesthetic that harmonizes magical spaces and unique characters. [Full review in Spanish]

The experience of watching Crumbs is one that's equally disorienting as it is revelatory.

February 21, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Mysterious, bizarre and somewhat inventive with a quirky Jean-Pierre Jeunet-vibe, but it often drags.

October 22, 2015 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Crumbs is an odd Afrofuturist odyssey that rebuilds the family of tomorrow from the discarded crumbs of today.
