Press Trust of India 

Eminent Ethiopian writer-director Haile Gerima will deliver this year's Aravindan Memorial Lecture, conducted on the sidelines of the annual of Kerala, on December 14.

Aravindan Memorial lecture is an annual event conducted in the honour of legendary Malayalam filmmaker G Aravindan. Gerima is best known for his internationally acclaimed film 'Sankofa' made in 1993.



His most recent film, 'Teza', a personal drama, set in Ethiopia and Germany, is to be screened as part of this programme, according to State Chalachitra Academy, the organiser of the event.

Throughout his career, Gerima has used his work as a critical lens for personal growth and creative development. His concern for people of African descent is evident, especially, where the representation of their image is concerned.

An alumnus of the University of California, (UCLA) School of Film and Television, Gerima has spent over 40 years making high value, low budget films outside of commercial institutions.

Gerima has been a distinguished professor of film at Howard University since 1975. He is also a leading member of the L.A. Rebellion film movement, also known as the School of Black Filmmakers, Academy sources added.
