Update from the field

Making a film is a labor of love and it takes a whole village. Our feature narrative film DIFRET is no different. We have been working on this project for the past three years with our production team from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, London, New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. It has truly been incredible to witness this process from beginning to end and we are thrilled to begin Principal Photography in Ethiopia this September.

As promised, we are going to be posting with frequent updates and wanted to keep you up to date. The logistics of pulling off an international production involve so many moving parts. And trying to shoot on film, no less, only raises the stakes.  The lack of film developing facilities in Ethiopia means shuttling our dailies to other countries. But we promise it will be well worth it. Thank you for all the supporters who have helped us come this far.

We look forward to sharing the film with all of you.
