Hairat tells the story of the hypnotizing night ritual of Yussuf Mume Saleh to establish bonds with the hyenas on the outskirts of the walled city of Harar. It is a wonderful poetic documentary work with a shared experience from which the feature film Faya Dayi emerges, which will be launched on site at the 23rd MIDBO.
