Twilight Revelations: Episodes in the Life & Times of Emperor Haile Selassie explores and analyzes key moments, both public and private, in the life and reign of the Emperor. Using a wealth of archival footage and photographs, the film reexamines the imperial administration through the eyes of numerous individuals who played impor- tant roles in the monarchy. Demisse will also show excerpts from a new Ethiopian oral history project.
