3rd Edition International Video Art Festival

 

PRESS RELEASE

 

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Theme: MUTUAL PERIPHERY

The border between Ethiopia and Eritrea has reopened after 20 years of shutdown following a war with more than 80000 fatalities. These sister countries were once a unified nation, sharing history, culture and language, the only two countries in the world to follow the thirteen month Julian calendar.

In response to this historic moment the festival presents video shorts that examine ideas and interpretations of 'Mutual Periphery'.
