The dramatic and moving experiences of three young Ethiopian competitors in the recent Olympic and Paralympic games in London are captured in a powerful new documentary, Hopes of Ethiopia II. The ten-minute film is a follow up to an earlier film highlighting the participants’ hopes and dreams before the competitions.

The three characters featured in the documentary are Yanet Seyoum, Ethiopia’s first female Olympic swimmer; an 800 and 1500 meter Paralympics runner, Tesfalem Gebru, and the 800 meter Olympic runner and a new sensation in Ethiopia’s athletics, Mohammed Aman.
