These Are My Names

Ethiopian Jews' multiple names reflect the richness, wisdom and beauty of their culture -- and every name tells a story. In the film, young Ethiopian Israelis share their journeys toward their names: stories of love and connection, survival and loss, anger and pride. Their original names – changed without their consent upon arrival in Israel – take them back to their childhoods in mountain villages, to their hunger and fear in Sudan, to longing for loved ones who died or disappeared on the journey to Israel, to denial of their identity…and reclamation of their roots.
