Eritrean Artists in War and Peace (1997)

1997. 56 minutes. Eritrea. Brian Varaday. Documentary

Portrays the aesthetic development of twelve artists in Eritrea, whose contemporary art movement was born during the Eritrean People's Liberation Front's 30-year war against Ethiopian control. A Culture Unit was formed in which 28 combatants, including five women, were selected to train as artists, and between major offensives they created drawings, paintings and posters. These artists are interviewed by Betty LaDuke, artist and professor of art, in their homes and work environments.
