Ethiopian Jews 1992 & 2015

In 1992, Handler followed a family of Ethiopian Jews from a remote part of their native country to Israel. This occurred just months following Operation Solomon, an airlift by the Israeli government that rescued thousands of Ethiopians from religious and ethnic persecution.

23 years later Lowell re-united with the family. The father died of cancer in 2008, and the mother, Terefu, is living with many of her eight grown children and a grandchild. All of them are Israeli citizens living in the suburbs of Tel Aviv. Handler took additional photographs and began directing his first documentary film about them.
