Based on countless real stories of young girls in Ethiopia, the movie ”Difret” revolves around a young girl who is abducted by a group of men so that she can be a wife for someone much older than her. “Difret” tries to educate about the harmful culture of abduction in Ethiopia. Acclaimed by many major news media like CNN and The Hollywood Reporter, the movie has Angelina Jolie as the executive producer.
Educated at the USC School of film right here in Los Angeles, the Ethiopian Director Zeresenay Berhane Mehari won four different awards for the movie. It is currently being shown at the Laemmle Theater Music Hall 3 until Thursday December 18, 2014. The theatre is located at 9036 Wilshire blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211. So come out and see this great movie and inspiring story, and show your support for Zeresenay!

Author: Makeda Yasenlul

If you’re reading this thank you for allowing me to steal a few minutes of your day to introduce you to me- the eccentric author of this blog. My name is Makeda Yasenlul and I’m a 20 something (let your imagination run wild) year old immigrant living in Los Angeles, California. This site was birthed from the longing I had of my birthplace Ethiopia, so I utilize this medium to express said thoughts, ideas, and feelings to you my readers. I surely have no filter, so anything that strikes me as worthy of sharing I will do so without hesitation, you have been warned. My thoughts are just those, MY THOUGHTS. I will not sugarcoat or whitewash the content I post on here, because then I would be doing you a disservice by not giving you my honest opinion. I also encourage other people to contribute in the form of comments or even as fellow authors (after passing my rigorous test of course). Thank you again and Enjoy.
