Director Jessica Beshir, Documentary, Not Rated, Ethiopia, Amharic with English subtitles, 2021, 120 min.

Ethiopian legend has it that khat, a stimulant leaf, was found by Sufi Imams in search of eternity. Inspired by this myth, Faya Dayi is a spiritual journey into the highlands of Harar immersed in the rituals of khat, a leaf that Sufi Muslims chewed for religious meditations – and Ethiopia’s most lucrative cash crop today. Through the prism of the khat trade, Faya Dayi weaves a tapestry of intimate stories of people caught between violent government repression, khat-induced fantasies, and treacherous journeys beyond their borders, and offers a window into the dreams of the youth who long for a better life.
