Possible World

by Ezra Wube

Possible World is a painted animation inspired by interviews conducted with over 100 everyday individuals across Ethiopia. In a series of beautiful and dynamic scenes, Wube brings to life his subjects’ dreams for a regenerative world, starting with existing practices that benefit both communities and the environment. Wube presents this collective vision to audiences around the world as a model for our shared future.
