Spotlight: Student Michael Shimeles

shimelesOur current student, Michael Shimeles, has directed two short films, including Ye Gomma Werat – one of four films our Sandscribe students produced this past fall under the leadership of Fulbright scholar, Lucy Gebre-Egziabher.

Ye Gomma Werat won great acclaim in December when it was screened before an audience of Addis’ filmmakers and film students.

Michael is now being mentored by Josh Soskin of House Blend Media through our mentor program.
