An inner fire traces the little-known story of three Ethiopian women who immigrated to America after surviving torture in their home country and, several years later, discover that the man responsible for their torture doesn’t just live in America, but works in the same Atlanta hotel as one of the women. The film documents the heartbreaking and historic attempt by women over many years to bring their torturer to justice in Atlanta.

“I was so touched and moved by this story,” said Kebede, who has appeared in films including Desert Flower, Samba and The best offer. “We don’t often hear about such stories – the ‘other’ stories. Stories that are not told. It is very gratifying to be a part of this film and to shed light on the story of these brave women.

“It was an amazing experience to bring this powerful story to the screen,” commented director Chistopher Chambers. “The resilience of these three women, refusing to be intimidated by their abuser, relentlessly seeking justice, while struggling to start a new life as immigrants and refugees, is the embodiment of heroism. These women represent the best of what “American values” can and should be. “

The doc was shot in ten cities, including Atlanta, Georgia; Ottawa, Canada; and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Endeavor Content’s Kevin Iwashina and Blake Levin resume sales. The producers are Christopher Chambers and Ermias Woldeamlak. Jeff Hoffman and Russell Gray are executive producers.
