Yes & No, single chanel, 7', 2022

This project was created in response to the recent civil war in Ethiopia between the TPLF and the government that erupted in late 2020 and affected millions. It was a recurring international headline in 2021. Heightened by the opinions of various national and international media outlets, unbiased information on the conflict seemed unobtainable. For generations, there have been power struggles between the dominant and larger ethnic groups. Ethiopia has over 80 different languages and ethnicities which does not make it any easier.  For the project, I am using headlines, images, and videos that were used to inform the public about the conflict. This project was a means to both process and reflect and to remember for the lives that are lost and continuously being affected.
