Ben Between Africa

Ben Between Africa is a personal and historical feature length documentary about Ben Gamber, the oldest son of Mennonite Missionaries who grew up in Ethiopia during the politically transformative era of the 1960s and 70s.

In 1975 at 25 years old, Ben would die under mysterious circumstances. Grief stricken, his parents would return to America and pack all memories of him away in an attic. 

This film is about what was found in those boxes.

The Latest

Almost two years after we kicked off our post production fundraiser we finally have picture lock! It's been an amazing adventure that has required creativity and growth to find our way through it. The film is currently being worked on by a VFX artist and a sound designer. In December 2023 I plan to bring on a colorist, and the final stage of post production will be to work with composer Jacob Bloomfield-Misrach of IMRSV Sound in Berkeley.
