Personal Documentary bound to Ethiopia's history

A must watch for the young generation who don't really know about the past yet close history of Ethiopia. Learn about the past to understand the present and foresee the future. Concise, moving documentary about the Ethiopia's dark history. I really liked the video editing, the lighting use. Bertu. Abren enedemer.

Strong Ethiopian women narrate a beautiful but haunting story

Finding Sally is a beautiful film about family, relationships, civil war and untold stories in Ethiopia. The film provides the viewer with an excellent overview of the political landscape in Ethiopia in the 1970s and beyond and tells the story of a young woman and her involvement in political activism. The Ethiopian women in this film, from all generations and places (many have lived part of their lives in Canada) are strong, articulate, and human. You can feel their emotion as the niece narrates the story which weaves many heartfelt testimonials from their aunts who tell the story of their sister Sally who fought in the EPLF as a freedom fighter. There are many surprises and heart rendering reveals. A deeply intimate insight into the country and culture of Ethiopia.

An interesting account and great exploration

This documentary was quite enjoyable and I am not sure what motivated the previous commenter to post such a malignant empty critique. Finding Sally is a unique story about the director's own aunt, Sally. The film chronicles the experiences of Sally, a charismatic ideologue and fateful revolutionary, and her aristocratic family during the most tumultuous and violent periods in Ethiopia's modern history. The fact that Sally is the director's aunt results in an intimate form of story-telling -- we learn her story like we would a fascinating relative of our own. Sally's story seems both unique but also perhaps one of many untold, and gives the human experience of a nation's painful transformations.
