The Anglo-Ethiopian Society
Film Screening - 'Sincerely Ethiopia'
Director Nathan Araya
Saturday 6th September 2014
12 noon, South Bank University, 90 London Road, London SE1 6LN - Public film screening (all welcome)
Tickets - £5 plus booking fee.
The Ethiopian Association of Students & Youth in the UK (EASYUK) is hosting an Exclusive London Screening of Sincerely, Ethiopia, together with their media partners Ethio Beauty Magazine and Tetv Spr. They have also partnered with Stop the Violence - UK and the Ethiopian Engineers Society - UK to put on what promises to be a packed and engaging event.
The documentary was created by four young people from the Ethiopian Diaspora, based in the U.S.A, who felt that there is an overwhelmingly negative portrayal of Ethiopia in the Western media that, while accurate to some extent, did not give the true picture. Their film highlights people that are addressing the problems facing their communities, building a better future, and working toward something great.
Since its release the Sincerely, Ethiopia team have been touring the documentary across the United States, around Africa, Europe and earlier this year they were nominated for 'Best Documentary' at The Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
Please note that this event will be starting at 12 noon sharp and will be followed by debating workshops to discuss the issues raised by the documentary and to give the opportunity to network. The event is scheduled to finish at 6:00pm.
Most of the dialogue in the film is in English, with subtitles where necessary, and is suitable for anyone over the age 12 with an interest in Ethiopia and Africa as a whole.
Tickets can be purchased in advance from Eventbrite.
