The documentary Mo and Me immortalizes the inspirational legend that was Mohamed ‘Mo’ Amin, a Kenyan who became a world-renowned photojournalist because of his coverage of the 1984 Ethiopian famine. His compelling coverage served as both the inspiration and as a catalyst for Band Aid, USA for Africa and Live Aid. In a career spanning more than thirty years, Amin’s honest unwavering approach to photojournalism earned him the unconditional respect of both friends and enemies alike. His remarkable life was cut tragically short in November 1996 when hijackers took over an Ethiopian airliner forcing it to crash land in the Indian Ocean killing 123 passengers and crew.

The Mo and Me film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the executive producer of the film (and son of Mohamed Amin), Salim Amin.
