Dead Weight

Lauren and fellow NYU alum Andrew Barkan scored for Yemane Demissie’s film Dead Weight, which follows the story of an Ethiopian woman who immigrated to LA.  Now 30+ years later, she is forced to confront the man who tortured her during the bloody Red Terror period in Ethiopia’s history.
