Audiences Continue to Praise Alum Amen Gibreab’s film “Horeta”

Horeta posterAlum Amen Gibreab (’13, Media & Communication Studies and Society, Ethics & Human Behavior) continues to screen his documentary Horeta: The Journey Beyond Culture, most recently shown at Roosevelt High School in Seattle.  Horeta follows the journey of 15 UW students as they examine Ethiopian culture and see first-hand how Ethiopians view themselves. What emerges is a powerful and transformative endeavor full of raw emotion, discovery, and new ideas surrounding perceptions of Ethiopia, and Africa, in general.  This July, Horeta will appear as an Official Selection at The African Film Festival in Dallas, Texas, and other locations are on the horizon.  Congratulations, Amen and the team!
