captures a historic moment
16 December 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a well-made and thought-provoking account of the fight for freedom in East Timor - as seen through the eyes of "the diplomat" Jose Ramos Horta, criss-crossing the globe and lobbying governments and individuals to take up the cause of his people. The makers had the good fortune to be filming as the East Timorese voted overwhelmingly for independence from Indonesia. While there was a bloody aftermath to the vote it proved the turning point in the generation-long fight for independence, and the film captures the historic moment when Horta and Xanana Gusmao (now president) were able to return to their homeland, amid great celebration. There is horror, humour, sorrow and great joy in this documentary, and it's deserved every award it has received.
