Dear friends and supporters of the Big Araia film project. Another productive trip to Washington, D.C. has concluded. It started with my arrival at an informational meet and greet at Queen Sheba restaurant after having just landed at BWI airport. We had a great turn out and I was able to share my story with some new friends and reunite with companions I had not seen in years.
As you might expect, any DC trip I have made in the last six months included a visit with the Eritrean Embassy to check up on the status of the Visas for my film crew. This trip was no different. The staff was very supportive and assured me that my project would go forward. I have several kind individuals assisting me with this process, both here in the states and back in Asmara. I hope the Visas are approved soon.
Once again I am back on the task of fund-raising for the film. An effort that is challenging, but rewarding. Keep your eye out for my updates! More exciting news to come! Hint… Eri-Fest 2012
