Ethnokino: Socotra: The Island of Djinns

Dokumentarfilm / Ethnografischer Film von Jordi Esteva, Yemen 2016, 64 Min., OVE

The film is the story of a journey across the island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Yemen. Ahmed Afrar, his companions and three cameleers with their animals trek to the mountains before the rainy season. During the trip, the Socotrians tell stories by the fire. During the night, the conversation turns to legends of djinns and monstrous snakes that dwell in the cavernous interior of the island.


EthnoKino is a student-run film program, started at the University of Bern and from now on at the Kino in der Reitschule. We present a hand-picked selection from European ethnographic film festivals and invite filmmakers for Q&A. Tune in!
