Directed by Paolo Barberi and Riccardo Russo?Documentary / Italy / 2011 56 min/ Oromo with English subtitles. New York Premiere
 
Synopsis:
Each year, when the dry season peaks in Southern Ethiopia, the Borana herders gather with their livestock around the ancient “singing wells.” Young shepherds form human chains, drawing water from the depths of the well. The film introduces us to a unique water-management system that allows the Borana to distribute the scarcity of water as the property and right of everyone.

CHILDREN OF SHEBA ART SHOW 
JUNE 2ND TO JUNE, 29TH 2013
 
SUNDAY , JUNE 9th 2013. 4:00PM
 
 
The works on display in this show, presented in broad and smooth strokes, represent the best of young artists inspired by Ethiopia. Their creative touches, chosen styles, artistic interpretations and personal histories are eclectic, but all share a special attachment to Ethiopia.
Without overwhelming the audience, their works inspire, tantalize, and encourage debate, encouraging pleasant discussions of old memories of Abyssinia, and goading us along for a trip to “the land of the burnt skins, those wonderful Ethiopians.” We hope you can join us in the support of these artists and their works. The exhibition also serves to increase the visibility of the Ethiopian culture and introduce Ethiopian artists to a wider community.
