Wonderful,Wonderful,Woven!!!
24 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I saw the movie Woven at the LA Film Festival and knew right away that this is a movie we all should see. Each character is multidimensional just as we all are as human beings. The movie carries us into the Ethiopian culture which so few Americans know much about. Happiness,love,loss,confusion,depression,guilt,and strength are emotions that don't care what nationality you are. One of the definitions of the word woven is to introduce as an element into a connected whole. That is exactly what this movie shows us, we are all connected. This is a movie that is perfect timing for the world in which we live in today. Great job to the film makers of Woven!
