Yemrehana Krestos (2020)
HD, 4 Minutes
Yemrahanah Krestos is a short film documenting a course through the northern Amhara region of Ethiopia, to an 11th century Orthodox Christian Church embedded in the side of a mountain. The church site is also the location for a large open and exposed tomb, containing the skeletons of what are said to have been hundreds of extremely pious monks who died spontaneously upon arriving at the site.
Commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge for their online ‘Broadcasts‘ series, the work can be viewed here: http://wysingbroadcasts.art/#yemrahanah-krestos
