New York (Tadias) – Haile Gerima’s award-winning film Teza is set to make its U.S. premiere at the Avalon Theater in Washington D.C. on Thursday, September 17, 2009.

Teza has scooped several awards at prestigious international film festivals – including the Venice Film Festival, the Carthage Film Festival, and the Panafrican Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou (Fespaco). The film focuses on the tumultuous years of the Mengistu era told through the gripping story of a German-educated, idealistic Ethiopian doctor.

Teza’s U.S. premiere is sponsored by the European Commission, Positive Productions, and WPFW-FM. Tickets can be purchased at Sankofa.com.
