Cascade Festival for African Films continues with film about Abebe Bikila

For more than 20 years now, Ethiopian filmmaker and actor Rasselas Lakew has worked to bring Ethiopia's most famous – and forgotten – Olympian to the screen. On Thursday, Feb. 17 and Friday, Feb. 18 the Cascade Festival of African Films will host screenings of "The Athlete" – an award-winning narrative film about Abebe Bikila, an unknown, barefooted marathon runner who won the 1960 Olympic marathon in Rome and became the first Black African to win a gold medal at the Olympics.
