An Ethiopian Love is an upcoming romantic comedy about Ethiopian-American twenty-somethings struggling with love and figuring out how to be both American and African at the same time. It looks like a very well-produced film, and writer/director Yonie Solomon will be sure to bring her experience as a music video director for artists such as Kanye West to the table; you might recognize one of An Ethiopian Love‘s stars, Helen Gedlu, from Kanye’s “Devil in a New Dress” video, which was also directed by Solomon.

The film’s creators have yet to announce a release date, but would you go see it?

  • Yes I would definitely watch this movie! It looks great and it’s amazing to see habeshia (east Africans) do their thing. Looks well written and produced.

    Habesha does not mean East African…Ethiopians and Eritreans are referred to as habesha.
