A personal investigation into the mysterious life of the director’s Aunt Sally, an Ethiopian aristocrat-turned-communist-rebel who disappeared after the revolution that lead to the overthrow of Emperor Haile Selassie.
User Reviews: 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.
