Fahema

Special | 26m 17s

This is the story of a 'caged spirit' using dance to create a bridge between three very different cultures and create a new place for herself in the world. Fahema was a child born in conflict and fled Ethiopia with her family during wartime. Now living and working in the U.S., she finds joy in dance but the nightmare of an arranged marriage creates roadblocks to happiness.
