tesfaye cover 3

Join us on August 14th in the main gallery for a special live (and final) edition of our Sunday Screenings – The Chorus is Speaking Edition!

Director Daniel Negatu will be here to screen short documentary Tesfaye and Addis Negatu will facilitate a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony to be held in tandem with the film. This event is by donation. There is a max capacity for this event so grab a ticket while they last!

Tesfaye: Structured as a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, ተስፋዬ / Hope re-imagines the extraordinary life of an Ethiopian castaway refugee, rescued from the sea in Madagascar and now living in Toronto – caught between a nostalgia for his home country and the possibility of a better life in another one.

To experiment with alternative methods of film exhibition, this film is structured as a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony which is composed of three sections – ABOL, TONA, BEREKA. The film is also broken into three sections and screened in parallel with the ceremony. It is to be stopped at the end of each section for a refill of coffee and audience participation.
