DCTV Presents: Asmara, Eritrea
Caterina Borelli | 63 min | 2007
Friday, January 22nd, 7:30pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette Street, NYC
In 1992, Eritrea became an independent East African nation after Italian colonization and 30 years of war with Ethiopa. Asmara, the country's beautiful capital city and architectural gem, rose to international attention. In this feature documentary, Asmarinos guide us through the streets of their city, and through their narrations, a chorus of experiences that embody the nation's post-colonial diversity and history come to life.
Screening followed by a Q&A with Caterina Borelli, moderated by Matthew O'Neill.
