‘Heaven & Earth’ is a documentary film that tells the story of an ancient civilization, covering a millennium of Ethiopian monastic culture and ecclesiastical education.
Presenting the development of indigenous Christianity in an African setting, the film provides a corrective to still prevalent stereotypes of Africa as a dark continent in need of enlightenment by outside forces.
Screening at Khalil Lecture Hall, SOAS on 28th January, 7pm
Followed by Q&A with the director Mackonen Michael, chaired by Dr John Campbell, SOAS
