New Ethiopian comedy drama


Ethiopian cinema, like the rest of Ethiopia’s film industry, is a relatively new phenomena. The Ethiopian film industry has faced a variety of challenges that have prevented it from growing to its full potential. Ethiopians like live theater, despite the fact that very few of them are well-known actors. Amharic was first used in Ethiopian films in the 2000s as the country started to become more contemporary, however copyright violations and piracy have hampered their development. This decreased in the early 2010s as a result of government participation and the application of policies. Despite recent developments, Ethiopian film production still lacks adequate funding and expertise in contrast to premieres in other nations. Ethiopian cinema made its debut in 1898, three years after the first motion picture was presented on December 25, 1895. Growth has significantly slowed as a result of the socioeconomic instability. Since the 1970s, Ethiopia’s film industry has primarily concentrated on historical and documentary films with deep cultural, religious, and national origins as a result of government pressure. A Frenchman brought the first film-related items to Ethiopia in 1898, and Italian minister Federico Ciccodicola later purchased them at the 2003 Annales d’Ethiopia. Then, Ciccodicola presented an item to Emperor Menelik II.
