Watch this video while you run on the treadmill! A 30 minute film for Girls Gotta Run of Southern Ethiopia.

I recently completed my first film which was funded by a 2014 grant I received from Getty Images and Lean-In.org.  The piece was made for Girls Gotta Run, a nonprofit organization out of Washington D.C. that facilitates running clubs in Southern Ethiopia for young women.  The video was crafted to be watched as one runs on a treadmill and to immerse the runner into the rural Ethiopian countryside, placing the viewer alongside the girls as they complete a 5k run.  It has an Ethiopian musical soundtrack, information about the organization as well as historical facts about Ethiopia throughout.  Within the 30 minutes are also two short videos I shot as well, one on the Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony and another on the Ethiopian Jewish Community.

Here is the trailer of the film.

Please share with any runners you know and let me know how it goes!
