New York (Tadias) – The 7th Annual Sheba Film Festival opened this past week in New York City.

The annual event, organized by The BINA Cultural Foundation, showcases a diverse array of Ethiopia-related films from around the globe.

The 2010 Festival includes Chris Flaherty’s film entitled Migration of Beauty, a documentary focusing on the disputed 2005 elections in Ethiopia. The director, Mr. Flaherty, who suspended his hunger strike today for health reasons, has been hoping to raise awareness about the timely topic given that the country will once again head to the polls on May 23, 2010.

Another film by Andrea Mydlarz-Zeller and Sam Shnider entitled Bewoket: By the Will of God documents the work of Rick Hodes, an American doctor who treats children with spinal tuberculosis in Ethiopia.

    Best wishes for the 7th Annual Sheba Film Festival,A cultural window which TADIAS communicates for readers.

    This is a cultural window on Ethiopia whereby the interaction of cultural elements from different faiths get expressions in the refined arts thus making the Nation on an equal footing with other civilizations as a vital resource for human imagination and artistic creativity as thus presented by TADIAS.
