The Back Story
Everything starts with an idea and a conversation
Heldana and Essey met in 2017 at a film event in Washington DC. They were both standing in line to speak with a renown filmmaker. The line was long, so Heldana turned to Essey and started a conversation. The ideas flowed. About a year later, Yegna Story was born.
