Berhana Film Screening
Music | 2023 | 120MIN
Julia Baylis and Sam Guest
Berhana presents the New York premiere of The Nomad’s Dream (or የዘላን ህልም in Amharic), followed by a conversation with special guest Gary Richardson. The film — which features music from Berhana’s new album Amén (out this fall on EQT Recordings) — explores themes of identity, including what it means to be a first-generation American and the strength of ties to ancestral lands. The film blends music and culture in a way that is deeply connected to the experiences of Ethiopian diaspora communities.
Berhana has been praised for the “immersive, documentary-style quality” (FADER) of his music, as well as his “kaleidoscopic blend of pop, R&B, electronica and psychedelic soul” (Essence). Amén is his second full length album, following 2019’s “funky, genre-defying” (The Atlantic) HAN and his 2016 debut EP Berhana.
