Top of page

Night and Silence is a documentary about the conclusion of the world's longest running war, in the Horn of Africa. The film includes exclusive footage of the Ethiopian army's attempts to crush the Eritrean nationalist rebellion, the carnage wrought by modern weapons when they are turned against the civilian populations of Northern Ethiopia, and the fate of victims of the famine and drought. Ted Koppel, of ABC Nightline says, "You're about to see and hear the face of war as you have rarely seen or heard it before."
