Teza: dir Haile Gerima (2008)
26 October @ 6.00 pm - 8.00 pmFree
Gerima ambitiously attempts to put his homeland’s recent history into context in the sprawling Teza, which follows an Ethiopian intellectual through exile in Germany and return to his home village during the turbulent early years of the repressive Marxist regime of Haile Mariam Mengistu. Taking place over three decades, the result is a handsome, intelligent and watchable film that may be about Ethiopia but also tells the sad story of so much of the African continent.
