Runtime: 15 min
Forged Ways is the first film in “The Diaspora Suite,” an ongoing series of 16mm films exploring Ephraim Asili’s relationship to the African diaspora. Photographed on location in Harlem and various locations throughout Ethiopia, the film shifts between the first person account of a filmmaker, the third person experience of a man navigating the streets of Harlem, and day-to-day life in the cities and villages of Ethiopia.
