Interview

Finally, Tsedi expressed her feelings for Dani

Like the nation’s whole film industry, Ethiopian cinema is a very recent phenomenon. The nation’s film sector is thriving, but challenges have prevented it from reaching its full potential. A robust live theater scene previously existed in Ethiopia, and it gave rise to a very small number of successful stage actors. Amharic has been added to Ethiopian films as they become more contemporary in the 2000s, but because home video and DVD distribution is so pervasive, copyright violations and piracy have slowed down their development. Because of the involvement of the government and the implementation of policies, this diminished in the early 2010s. Ethiopian film production has remained amateurish and of low quality despite recent advancements, in contrast to foreign premieres. Prior to the 1990s, few people were aware with films that did well at international box offices. The most well-known individuals who contributed to the international success of Ethiopian films were Haile Gerima, Salem Mekuria, Yemane Demissie, and Teshome Gabriel. Amharic was increasingly used in Ethiopian movies in the 2000s. However, because DVDs are so popular, many directors were concerned about piracy. The Addis Abeba Culture and Tourism Bureau reports that between 2005 and 2012, production increased from 10 to 112. In 2013, the Ethiopian government had plans to work with different members of the industry to create a new film strategy.
