Ethopia Dances for Joy film trailer Add Video

"Ethiopia Dances for Joy," filmed, produced and directed by Tamalyn Dallal, and edited by George Achi, is a fascinating look at Ethiopian dance and culture. The full, 50 min. documentary, can be ordered from www.DanceOnFilm.info, www.TamalynDallal.com, or www.ZamaniCulture.com. In this film, reknown dancer Tamalyn Dallal goes to Ethiopia. With help from a circus school, she explores life in Ethiopia during Orthodox Easter. She winds up on the same flight as the Pope of the Ethiopian Orthodox church, and sees fabulous processions of priests, bearing colorful umbrellas and huge, ancient crosses. In other towns, she films 17 dances, has an encounter with hippos at the base of the Blue Nile, and travels to a holy Muslim city with ancient dances and customs all their own.
