property damage and in one case a four year juvenile prison sentence has been handed down. the so-called titan group committed five bombing attacks their targets included the car of a local left party politician and two refugee shelters it's only by chance that no one was killed the state prosecutor said the verdict was fitting. we're hard on the clock we brought charges of membership in and leadership a terrorist organization for the court some of these attacks as cases of attempted murder as did we so we feel validated local prosecutors and saxony wanted this case to be handled by the local juvenile court but the federal prosecutor's intervention confirmed the investigation as a terrorist lated case it sets a precedent that xenophobic crimes will be severely punished. when else ethiopia and its film industry now those in the know say that the industry in the country is
known may sleep mostly for producing or mantic comedies but that's not all that the countries you're makers have to offer a what if you got a spot in the blue you know iowa cademy where they learn how to produce films for the big screen on a shoestring budget take a look. a film screening at the blue nile economy if the o.p.'s only film school today student get it to use and gallo is presenting his first film a documentary about rastafari. the film screening history but trainer abraham haley barrow is not quite satisfied with its cinematography the guy is in the dark so you need more light to see him and maybe you can come closer to that. truth. or in the interview what he's saying.

r.'s zero pm to see what a graph from. my school does my problem is equipment because i need space around the percent income tax for the equipment. with no way of promoting the films and high taxes the f.p.o. pay and government makes it difficult for filmmakers to do their work in this increasingly authoritarian state the government fears critical artists so it censors assess every film before its release. and if you making a movie there is. a desire to the culture of the bureau you need to have permission. loans of screening from the agency that means the agency can block you if they are not happy with the message what you have abraham says that for this reason many of his colleagues prefer to deal with less contentious topics those writing most of them running to the committee because then
you know it's only to law for people not serious to think about the issue what's going on in the country the problem what we have the social issues exeter exeter why should they want. despite these problems the a.t.o. paean film industry is booming every year one hundred films are produced here mostly romantic comedies. is a lot of as i'm reduced i have to work on market oriented films drama there's onerous that we produce right now i'll just romantic comedies because that's what the market wants which to launch the films are well received by audiences but abraham has bigger plans for the country's film industry that are moving in. that african countries and also always arrow where not because we understand. christian state censorship and poor infrastructure make life difficult for young
