Film Screening: Éthiopiques: Revolt of the Soul Starting 7PM



WMI celebrates Ethiopian New Year with this special documentary screening on September 11 and a special performance by legendary artist Girma Bèyènè and Akalé Wubé on September 12.

Éthiopiques: Revolt of the Soul is a film about the rise, fall and redemption of a group of spectacular Ethiopian jazz musicians who in the swinging 60’s ignited an explosive cultural revolution in Addis Ababa (“Swinging Addis”). Their music was sublime but this golden era was brought to an end by the military regime that took over the country and forced the musicians into exile and jail. Now, after many years, they are back on a world stage, making up for lost time and still swinging. Our film follows the inspirational figures whose amazing life stories illustrate music’s power of redemption in the face of war and heartbreak.
