Amana Weldach

Amana kids was established to help eliminate some of the deprivations orphan children face in and around Harar. In 1995 we reached out to five kids. Today, we have reached 21 children ranging from kindergarten to seventh Grade. Their ages range between 3 and 15 with complete gender equality. Amana will add an additional 5 to10 kids annually until the future goal of 500 kids is reached.

MERQANA OFFICIAL TRAILER [ENG] from 101 Film on Vimeo.

Published on Jun 27, 2012 by

"Merqana" explores the social universe of qat, cutting through an only apparently ordinary day
in the plant's commodity chain. It follows the fascinating work of Ramadan, a young farmer;
Jarso, a successful merchant; and Amir, a young religious leader with a passion for long chewing sessions and traditional Sufi chants. The film unfolds the ways this little-known plant has become extremely popular among the people of Harar, becoming the main source of income for poor farmers and wealthy businessmen.

Qat was chewed for centuries in the Horn of Africa and beyond, but has only recently become a major cash crop for farmers in Ethiopia, and a popular commodity in many countries around the world. As a consequence, qat is a powerful means of economic and cultural exchange between East Africa and the diasporic communities living in Europe and in the US.

"Merqana" was entirely shot in and around the walled city of Harar, Ethiopia.
Founded around the 7th century by Muslim migrants from the Arabian Peninsula, Harar was the main city on the trade route linking Yemen to the heart of Africa. Isolated from the rest of the region soon after the realization of the Djiboutian-Ethiopian railway, Harar and the nearby night market of Awoday remain the cultural, economic and political capitals of qat, being the plant cultivated mostly in their surroundings.
