  • Ge'ez is a sacred script in the Rastafarian religion. Roots reggae musicians have used it in album art.

    The film 500 Years Later (፭፻-ዓመታት በኋላ) was the first mainstream Western documentary to use Ge'ez characters, which were used in the title. The script also appears in the trailer and promotional material of the film.
