Our Heroes are those who work for Peace

Hayal Hayl  is originally an Emmy nominated English feature-length documentary film known as A Force More Powerful; this film won several awards, it screened at film festivals worldwide and aired as a special TV series nationally on PBS. For the first time a translation of the film is complete in the Amharic language to the Ethiopia people.

Hayal Hayl explores the success of six nonviolent movements throughout the world, illustrating the most common misconception about conflict; violence is not the prevailing power. Behind the scenes of making this film was a combination of vigor and tenacity, from the editors, narrator, voice actors, producer, and translator working on this project without ever being paid.

After witnessing enough violence themselves, the journalists, artists, scholars and activists participating in the completion of this film believed that Hayal Hayl would be a great way to contribute to a better Ethiopia by showing peaceful engagements as a way to have a voice within Ethiopian politics. We would like to acknowledge and thank each person who worked on bringing this film to Ethiopians and showcasing an important aspect of resistance-peace.

This film was able to first come alive in Amharic with the translation made by Mindayie Rasselass. Elias Wondimu, Dr. Alemayehu Abebe, Frehiwot Samuel, Mesfin Yimam and Kifle Mulat worked diligently to polish the translated script. We also acknowledge Tekle Yewhala, from DW (German Radio Amharic Service) the narrator who lent a special voice to this piece. Finally the film would not be a success without the Amharic voice actors who we would like to equally acknowledge in no particular order : Tekele Desta, Alemtsehai Wedajo, Alemayehu Gebre-Hiwot, Girma Degefa, Wendwossen Kebede, Tisgist Nigatu, Abebe Feleke and Konjit Taye. Everyone who participated in this film, embodies a zest for creating work which contributes to a better Ethiopia and Hayal Hayl is an important part of history and will be an example in Ethiopia for generations to come.
