Tuesday, May 27 at 7:00
AtriumFlix
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center

In this story of a young girl’s abduction into marriage and her subsequent trial for murder in self-defense, writer/director Zeresenay Berhane Mahari juxtaposes Ethiopia’s panoramic beauty with one of its oldest and most oppressive traditions. Based on real events, Difret portrays the complexity of a country’s movement toward equal rights. Singer/songwriter Meklit Hadero will perform.
