Beatriz's War
A Guerra Da Beatriz
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE FEATURE
Beatriz's War
COUNTRY: EAST TIMOR
LANGUAGE: TETUN
SUBTITLES: ENGLISH
YEAR: 2013
DURATION: 98 mins
A country's first film. A love story. Written in blood.

East Timor's first feature film has an epic span covering the 24-year period of Indonesian occupation. Beatriz and Tomas grow up together but are torn apart by the war. The film's power is born of an overwhelming immediacy. During some scenes involving the 1983 Kraras massacre, many of the extras were widows of those killed and were in tears or in shock because the story being told was their own.

The film focuses on the life women lived under occupation: their struggles, fears, loves, and strengths. It is a passionate story of one woman's conviction to remain true to the man she loves and the country for which she fought.
