Being off twitter is so refreshing. None of that crap polluting my head
A short story for a Documentary Portrait assignment. With the permission of the family, here’s their story:
In April 2004, Ethiopian security forces arrested former ETV journalist Dhabasa Wakjira. After three years in prison without trial, Dhabasa fled the country to escape further persecutions. His wife, Lelisee Wodajo, was then arrested and sentenced to 10 years without parole in Ethiopia due to her identity.
Lalisee was later on released on 8 July 2011 and finally reunited with her family and friends in Melbourne on 8 August 2013 after more than 8 years of separation.
