Haile Gerima’s long awaited sequel to his critically acclaimed film Adwa will screen in Los Angeles this weekend. The work in progress entitled The Children of Adwa: 40 Years Later “tells the story of the second Italian invasion of Ethiopia,” the event announcement notes. “Using intimate accounts from Ethiopian resistance fighters accompanied with archival footage The Children of Adwa illustrates what some people have called the true beginning of World War II, an invasion that captured the attention of the world and an occupation that tested the will of the people.”
Haile Gerima, who is also currently fundraising for his new film Yetut Lij, will be present for a Q&A following the film screening at University of California, Los Angeles, his alma mater, on Saturday, June 27th at James Bridges Theater. Light refreshments and drinks will be provided by Azla Vegan.
