Finding Sally

Finding Sally tells the incredible story of a 23-year-old woman from an upper class family who became a communist rebel with the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Party. Her romances and ideals entangled her in the country’s revolutionary fever and landed her on the military government’s most wanted list. In 1975 she went underground and her family never saw her again. Four decades after Sally’s disappearance, Tamara Dawit pieces together the mysterious life of her Aunt Sally and revisits the Ethiopian revolution and the terrible massacre that followed. Her quest leads her to question notions of family, identity, belonging, personal convictions, idealism and political engagement, in a time when Ethiopia may be on the brink of another revolution
