Right HERE is an interview with Eritrean actress, Lula Teclehaimanot, in the Vogue Black section of the Italian version of Vogue magazine. In the interview, Teclechaimanot talks about her role in an Italian film she’s starring in titled Ainom, which made it’s premiere this month at the Shanghai International Film Festival (trailer embedded below).
According to the interview, the film is about a young woman who is “an ex-guerrilla fighter who has fled Eritrea and now works in a ski resort in France; and though she plans to reunite with her husband and child, she “accepts the amorous attentions of Enrico, and suffers from their continuous physical and psychological violence.“
Anyone familiar with Lula Teclehaimanot or her work? I’ve never heard of her before, and could not find any background information about her.
Perhaps some of our readers can help out…
