Inside Ethiopia

From Nemeth/Star Productions - Wiki


Inside Ethiopia was a documentary series about Ethiopia. In 4 episodes the series show various locations in the Tigray Region, the city of Mekélé, the countries capital Addis Ababa and in Debre Libanos in the Oromia region. Beautiful landsides, two major cities and Ethiopia's culture and history are part of the series.

Inside Ethiopia was the first Nemeth/Star Productions show that was produced with the use of Creative Commons music and planed to premiere on a bigger platform such as YouTube or the in 2017 started own website of Nemeth/Star Productions. The show was cancled after the 4th episode as there were doubts if secure filming for our production team was possibile in some regions in Ethiopia. In the moment we come to the opinion that secure filming in Ethiopia is possible for our production team again, we open to plan further episodes of Inside Ethiopia.
