Film Africa Presents - Asni: Courage, Passion & Glamour in Ethiopia
Fri 23rd Sept - 7pm

 

A documentary about the extraordinary artist, Asnaketch Worku, who is as much a cultural icon to Ethiopians as Billie Holiday is to Americans and Edith Piaf to the French. Asnaketch lived her life on the edge of her artistry, over the edge of her passions. She brought high standards to theatre and excitement to music in conservative Ethiopia through the 1950s and '60s. Her gift and transparent nature made her infectious to audiences not only in Ethiopia but also around the world.

Presented by Film Africa in partnership with the Bernie Grant Arts Centre. Supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery.
