Abstract

In 1896, Ethiopia, an African nation, largely armed with spears and knives, defeats a well-equipped and organized Italian military bent on colonization. The Battle of Adwa and Ethiopia's independence in the era of European colonization still inspires the nation's peoples today. This documentary interviews historians, elders, priests, poets, and singers to show how that battle shaped Ethiopian identity and inspired dreams of African liberation.
