ADFF: Funding Ethiopian film ‘Difret’ was a challenge – gulfnews.com

Angelina Jolie joined production team of Difret as executive producer

If the director and producers of Ethiopian film Difret were not having enough difficulty in funding the film, the fact that they insisted on making it in Amharic, Ethiopia’s official language, made matters all the more complicated.

“I thought [the plot] would be lost if I had done the film in English, and I wanted this film to mean something for Ethiopians, especially young girls in Ethiopia,” said Zeresenay Mehari, director of Difret, at a question-and-answer session following the film’s screening at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival (ADFF) on October 28.
