Dawit N.M. is an Ethiopian Director currently based in New York. Dawit’s fascination with unique, real and universal themes of the human experience drive his work. Dawit loves to frame a feeling more than anything else and his emotion-led sensibility directly influences the way he creates a visual language. The work pulls its audience into worlds that delve into grief, mortality, love, relationships, and devotion. His directorial debut - a visual accompaniment for Ethiopian-American singer/songwriter Mereba’s debut album entitled ‘The Jungle Is The Only Way Out’ (2019) - earned him a nod for Emerging Director at the 2019 American Black Film Festival. Dawit’s first exhibition, ‘The Eye That Follows’ (2020), was on view at The Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA, summer of 2020.
