Salem Mekuria with The Square Stories Trilogy (Ethiopia, 2010-2019, 73 min)

For more than a decade, Salem Mekuria, producer, director and video installation artist, has been observing and capturing scenes at Maskal Square, the largest and only public square in the country of Ethiopia. Resisting a single narrative, The Square Stories Trilogy is an experience of overlapping sounds and sights which capture the personal and collective histories of a public space within a city undergoing major transformations in Ethiopia

A collaboration with the School of Arts and Sciences's African Film and Media Pedagogy Seminar at Penn.
