It's been two months since our last update and we wanted to inform you of some important milestones for our documentary.
Articles - We've acquired articles pertaining to the contributions of Armenians in Ethiopia to art, business and culture. These articles are now in the process of translation
Archival Photographs - we've acquired archival photographs from magazines and personal collection of members of the Armenian community in Addis Ababa and from people who have been generous and with foresight to help with donating photographs.
Translation - 80% of our interviews with several legendary Ethiopian musicians have been translated and transcribed from Amharic to English. Armenian translation has not yet begun.
Interviews - We've conducted interviews with some elders of the community who offer personal insight into the transformation of the community over the decades and give a priceless perspective as to the trajectory the community is headed.
Music Video - We've also directed, produced and edited the music video for Ethiopia's only performing Ethiopian-Armenian artist, Vahe for his song titled Yene Tizita (My Memory). Stay tuned for a posting of the music video on this website to promote an Armenian artist living and performing in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
As always, your support is appreciated every moment we are able to continue our work and we want you to know your backing has been tremendous.
Thank you for keeping independent documentary filmmaking alive!
