|Yosef Haimanot's - Mothersland :-|
|David Beard Music Production has created music scores for two of Yosef Haimanot's short films; 'Beyond The End' and 'Misplaced' and has now completed the music for the first part of his three-part documentary 'Mothers-Land'|
|A documentary film about a young filmmaker who goes back to his home country Ethiopia after 21 years in exile. He backtracks his journey step by step showing the places that he lived during the early years of his life.
He was born in 1975 and lived through the civil war and the famine of 1984, which he witnessed first-hand as a child. In 1988 at the age of thirteen he and his brother climbed an anchor chain and stowed away on a Greek ship which was bound for the UK. While onboard they were discovered and imprisoned until the ship reached its destination. There, they were handed over to the immigration officers.
|They ended up in the care of the social services. He was aged thirteen and didn't speak a word of English. Between 1988 and 1991 he attended school but he didn't complete his studies because of the general difficulty of the English language. A few years later; when he felt that he had a better understanding of English he went to college to study performing arts.
He then went on to do a course in media communication, where he discovered that he had an affinity with the moving image. This led him to take a degree in 'Film' followed by a MA in the same subject. In the process he lost his own language and his family.
