According to Einstein’s unifying law, a continuous transformational cycle between mass and energy must occur for anything to exist. Addis Ababa is in the midst of massive transformation. It is expanding drastically with over a quarter of its current residents relocating to newly built neighborhoods. As old communities are disappearing new ones are forming. Echoing the current state of the city, these videos examine the paradoxical unity of movement in energy and its relationship to stillness. How does one negotiate these shifts? What is the axis of time in the frame of the past and the present? How does one cope with the familiar and the unfamiliar? How does one endure a consistent belonging while everything around it is in transition?

Addis Video Art Festival intends to provide a platform for innovative video art in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The festival will screen throughout the city in a variety of locations including street corners, rooftops, public centers and art centers. By sharing video art in both conventional and non-conventional settings, the festival will reach both the artist community and the everyday passerby. The festival aims to create a dialogue between local, and international artists by encouraging digital media culture.
