Not only is Halle Gerima a truly great filmmaker, he is also the definitive example of what it means to be an independent filmmaker. That is, he never compromises, and in every one of his films, such as Sankofa, Adwa, Ashes and Embers and Harvest: 3000 Years, his goal is to search and bring out, into the open, that elemental, elusive quality known as the truth.

Teza

Not only is Halle Gerima a truly great filmmaker, he is also the definitive example of what it means to be an independent filmmaker. That is, he never compromises, and in every one of his films, such as Sankofa, Adwa, Ashes and Embers and Harvest: 3000 Years, his goal is to search and bring out, into the open, that elemental, elusive quality known as the truth.

That's why it's major news, when one of his films is available to be seen by a wider audience.

So with that, I'm happy to announce that his 2009 film, Teza, was released earlier this month on DVD and is now available.

As Gerima describes Teza, which is set in Germany, and Gerima's homeland of Ethiopia, the film "examines the displacement of African intellectuals, both at home and abroad, through the story of a young, idealistic Ethiopian doctor - Anberber. The film chronicles Anberber's internal struggle to stay true, both to himself and to his homeland, but above all, Teza explores the possession of memory - a right humanity mandates that each of us have - the right to own our past."

And keeping true to his independent spirit, the DVD is only available through Gerima's production company Mypheduh Films, and his Sankofa Video bookstore based in Washington D.C..

If you're interested in getting the DVD go HERE.

And here's the trailer for the film:
