5/9/06: Mo & Me
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Kenyan photojournalist Mohamed Amin survived imprisonment, torture and even amputation to bring the stories of Africa to the world. Best known for his coverage of Ethiopa's 1984 famine, his work inspired Bob Geldof's "Live Aid" concerts. After his untimely death on a hijacked airplane in 1996, his son Salim Amin took up his work. Amin talks about Mo & Me, the new documentary which chronicles his father's legacy, and about his own efforts to give voice to an oft-misunderstood continent.
- The Salt Lake City Film Center will host Salim Amin tomorrow evening, Wednesday, May 10, for a screening and discussion of the documentary Mo & Me. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and will be held at the Vieve Gore Concert Hall at Westminster College (1840 S 1300 East). For more information, vist The Salt Lake City Film Center on-line or call 801-746-7000.
