MULTICOLORED FLOWERS A film directed, written and produced by Dr. Fikre Tolossa


A film directed, written and produced by Dr. Fikre Tolossa to be featured for the public at large in Oakland, California

A "coming of age" feature film with satire and comical overtones and undertones reflecting the influence of black music, fashion and culture on white, Latino and Asian youngsters, as well as the unresolved race and ethnic relationships in the United states. It also depicts that the roots of Rap music, hairdos, dances and the wearing of bandanas and doo-rags are in Ethiopia and the rest of Africa.

If blacks "acted white" in the past to fit in, now times are changing- "whites act" black to fit in, as demonstrated in this film.
