Lessons in Seeing is the story of Sibhatleab Mebratu, an aging math teacher who spent 25 years as a political prisoner and refugee in Ethiopia. During his first week in Houston, Sibhatleab visits Salem Market, a store that caters to Houston’s diverse African communities. The film depicts his journey in a new country, his struggles with eviction, and his love of math in the summer before a contentious election amid growing anti-refugee rhetoric.
