Canta! Timor

Directed by Natsuko Hirota, 110min, 2003, original version with English subtitles

The film will be introduced by Colin Grafton who is a film and photograph enthusiast. In Japan he introduced Canta! Timor at its Tokyo screening.

When Natsuko went to E. Timor in 2002, she met Alex, a singer/songwriter. This encounter inspired her to make this film, which is not only about E. Timor’s bitter struggle for independence, but also about its spiritual power. There are parallels with Cambodia here, but also striking differences.

Free admission. All are welcome.
