Movies | ‘Teza’: Ethiopia’s tortured history, as seen through a disillusioned man’s eyes | Seattle Times Newspaper

Both intimate and sprawling in its scope and reach, “Teza” is a remarkable portrait of the tortured political and social history that Ethiopia suffered in the last decades of the 20th century.Waves of torment and pride that gripped the country are vividly captured through the eyes of a man named Anberber (a haunting Aaron Arefe), who is subjected to extremes of elation and devastation. His journey of disillusionment is the very personal exploration of a national psyche as interpreted by filmmaker Haile Gerima.
