Film School Student Amleset Muchie Films President Girma Wolde-Giorgis Documentary

June 25, 2009

The 2006 Miss Ethiopia Amleset Muchie currently studying film making at New York Film Academy is making a documentary on the life of President Girma Wolde-Giorgis.

The one-hour long documentary which is a school project for the actress, model and director would chronicle a day in the life of the president as told by himself, close associates and her own commentary. The documentary would bring an intimate look behind the Jubilee Palace showing as the president attending staff conference, meeting with dignitaries and ceremonial events.

The 84-year-old president who holds a symbolic office with little power has authorized Amleset to come and document him. Amleset is hoping to start shooting soon and have it ready in months’ time. The doc would be premiered at the New York Film Academy and other festivals.

Amleset has already written and produced a romantic comedy, Si Le Fikir (About love) and has also starred in another Amharic film “Ye Felegal.”
