Ethiopian Reminiscences - Rita and Richard Pankhurst

Posted: Jun, 25th 2019 Contributor: Bilen Shifferaw,

A great short film from TSEHAI Films.

In 1958, Richard Pankhurst asked Rita Eldon to leave her home in London and move to Ethiopia with him and his mother, suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst. Without the promise of marriage and with relatively little knowledge of the country, Rita said yes, and so began the love affair between the two, and their adopted home, Ethiopia.

Reminiscences provides a unique view of travel within Ethiopia, seemingly ceaseless work and, most important to Rita and Richard, innumerable deep and life-long friendships.
