Price of Love is showing as part of the Afrika Eye Film Festival
A young Addis Ababa taxi driver gets caught up in the dark side of love in this off-beat romance. Teddy is trying to take the high road and put his khat-chewing and drinking days behind him. When his taxi is stolen after he helps a young girl escape her violent ex-pimp, he sees his livelihood and source of redemption abruptly disappear. Feeling guilty, this mysterious beauty offers to help Teddy get his taxi back, and before long he's falling for her charms. Having grown up in proximity to sex work, renowned writer/director Hermon Hailey draws on personal experience to add depth to this courageous and bittersweet film, capturing the dark underbelly of a city in flux.
