BOKIM: A Journey, is a full-length documentary that explores lives of Ethiopian and Eritrean immigrans in Europe, and indigenous community in the context of global migration. Year after year, thousands of primarily poor and young indigenous Habeshes, abandon their native homes. They start voyages to the first world, some escaping persecution, some in search of jobs and the hope of a brighter future--or, indeed, any economic future at all. In their wake, they leave behind the hollow footprints of a cultural and domestic abandonment. BOKIM illustrates this through the story of a middle-aged ETHIOPIAN man AND  a middle-aged ERITREAN woman and their families' life in London. Relatively affluent and erudite, Ethiopian man returns home after a long exile in Europe. But upon arrival to his native Addis Ababa, he is struck by what he perceives as a virtual ghost town. He experiences, first hand, his old reality is now non-existant, dreamlike. Time has changed many things. It is as if he travelled through time. From past to the future, or is it vice versa?  BOKIM: A Journey, attempts in posing one of the central questions of our times: What changed? and What caused the change in our society?

The film will be shot on true HD film camera and is aimed to be screened at festivals and for television broadcast.

If you require a detailed break-down of the cost of the production and the resume of the filmmaker please write to: alelegnk@hotmail.co.uk

I belive it is our responsibility to record and pass-on to the next generation:  our story- a human story, our pain, sufferings, bravery, love,... 

Let's work to be remembered as survivals in the new world, in the memories' of our children.

 ጉዞ ወደ ቦኪም፣ ልሰራው ያቀድኩት የጥናታዊ ፊልም ወይም የዶኩመንተሪ ፊልም ዕርዕስ ነው። የዚህ ዶኩመንተሪ ፊልም ታሪክ የሚያጠነጥነው በሁለት በመካከለኛ የእድሜ ዘመናቸው ላይ በሚገኙ እና በስደት በእንግሊዝ ሀገር በሚኖሩ  በአንድ ኢትዮጵያዊ ወንድ እና በአንድ ኤርትራዊት ሴት ህይወት እና የኑሮ ሁኔታ ላይ ሲሆን፣ እነኚህ ሁለት ሰዎች እንደ ሌሎች መሰል ኢትዮጵያዊ እና ኤርትራዊ ፣በእንግሊዝ የሚኖሩ ስደተኞች የተሻለ ኑሮን በመሻት ትውልድ ሀገራቸውን፣ቀያቸውን፣መንደራቸውን፣ ህዝባቸውን ወደኃላ ጥለው ወደ ማያውቁት ሀገር እና ህዝብ ብሎም ወደማያውቁት ልማድ፣ ባህል እና የኑሮ ሁኔታ ውስጥ የተዘፈቁ ናቸው። ከጊዜ በኃላ ወንዱ ኢትዮጵያዊው ባለ ታሪክ ከሃያ አመት በላይ ተለይቶት ወደ ነበረበት የትውልድ ሀገሩ ኢትዮጵያ ጉዞ ያደርጋል። ነገር ግን እዚያ ሲደርስ ነገሮች እንደጠበቃቸው ሆነው አያገኛቸውም። ብዙ ነገሮች ተቀያይረዋል። 

ይህ ሁኔታ በአሁኑ ወቅት ብዙ ምስክር የማያሻው የተለመደ የብዙዎቻችን ገጠመኝ እየሆነ ያለ እውነት ነው። ጊዜ ሲቀየር፣ ሰዎች ይቀየራሉ። ጊዜ ባቡር ቢሆን፣ ሹፌሩ ማን ይሆን? ፌርማታወስ የት ይሆን? እነማንስ ተሳፈሩት? በመድረሻውስ ማን ተደሰተ? ማንስ ከፉው?

    ባለታሪኩ ኢትዮጵያዊ ሀዘን በተጫነው ስሜት "ወይ ያቺ በልቤ ወስጥ ያለችንና  በአይኔም ዳግም እስካያት እናፍቃት የነበረች ያቺ እኔ የማውቃት ኢትዮጵያ የት ነው አድራሻዋ? እቺኛዋ በስም ሞክሼ ሳትሆን አትቀርም" ብሎ እራሱን እስከመጠየቅም ሳይደርስ ይቀር ይሆን።

ልሰራው ያሰብኩት ፊልም፣ ጨብጡ ይህ ነው። እውን እንዲሆን ግን እገዛችሁ ያስፈልገኛል። 

ታሪካችንን፣ የስደት ዘመን ገድላችንን ቀርፀን ለልጆቻችን እንዲያውቁት እና እንዲያውቁን በትምህርት ሰጪነቱ አስቀምጠንላቸው እንለፍ። ጥያቄዬ ይህ ነው። 

የእርዳታ እጆዎን ለመሰንዘር  Give   የሚለውን ይጫኑ። የፔፓል አካውንት ከሌለዎ ዴቢት ካርድዎን መጠቀም ይችላሉ። የእርዳታ ትንሽ የለውምና አያሳስብዎ።
