From Christoffer Petersen on February 13th, 2019
Eritrean Artists in War and Peace follows Betty LaDuke as she travels to Eritrea to speak with a group of artists that she first met on a teaching trip in 1994. All of these individuals fought in the war between Eritrea and Ethiopia that spanned for 30 years, which is what much of their art focuses on. In this video, LaDuke speaks with the artists about the pieces that they created during the war, as well as those they created after. LaDuke speaks with 12 artists, including: Elsa Jacob, Terhas Iyassu, Mikael Adonai, Brehane Adonai, Haile Michaiel Ogbu, Laine Blata, Abraham Mogos, Kiros Abebe, Woldu Afwari, Haile Berhe, Mussie Asgodam, and Danny Dafla.Video produced by Betty LaDuke.
