Lamb, an Ethiopian drama film directed by Yared Zeleke, tells the story of Ephraim, an Ethiopian child, who is sent to live with relatives far away.

The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art has an exhibit titled “The End of Innocence: Childhood Torments in the Contemporary Art Collection.” In conjunction with that exhibit, the museum’s cinema will show a movie about a boy going through a traumatic time in his life.

“Lamb” tells the story of Ephraim, an Ethiopian child, who is sent to live with relatives far away. He takes his pet sheep with him. His uncle wants to sacrifice the sheep for a religious festival, and the boy must do what he can to save his beloved friend.

The movie, in Amharic with subtitles, will be shown Thursday, May 12, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 15, at 2 p.m. at the theater at 600 Main St. in Hartford. Admission is $9, $8 seniors and students, $7 members, free for Insider Access members and above.
