Abeba (2023) is a hybrid genre film for Migration and Mobility (Global Cinema) course. Inspired by the aesthetic approaches found in Nollywood , Documentaries and other genres, and through a fictional narrative. The film centres around Abeba, a young migrant who moved recently to the UK. She works as a cleaner; the film follows her daily routine. We see Abeba doing mundane everyday chores. One day after work, Abeba receives a text message from a guy that she fancies inviting her to a house party. While getting ready for the party, she receives a sudden phone call from her overbearing mother. During the call, Abeba engages in a web of lies to escape her mother's interrogation.
