Blood Is Not Fresh Water

Time Out says

Eshetu's essay on his ancestral homeland of Ethiopia is a melange of travelogue, history and myth. Ostensibly a portrait of the video-maker's grandfather, who held many ministerial posts during the reign of Haile Selassie, this intelligently constructed work is a lyrical exploration of the country which Eshetu terms 'a place of the imagination', yet it also tackles head-on contemporary and historical Eurocentrist assumptions. A vibrant sense of place is caught with visual flair on scant resources.
