Faya Dayi (2021)

Ethiopian legend has it that khat, a stimulant leaf, was found by Sufi Imams in search of eternity. Inspired by this myth, "Faya Dayi" is a spiritual journey into the highlands of Harar immersed in the rituals of khat, a leaf that Sufi Muslims chewed for religious meditations—and Ethiopia's most lucrative cash crop today. Through the prism of the khat trade, "Faya Dayi" weaves a tapestry of intimate stories of people caught between violent government repression, khat-induced fantasies and treacherous journeys beyond their borders, and offers a window into the dreams of the youth who long for a better life.


Director: Jessica Beshir
