Archive: Film Screenings Update 2013

Last night saw a sell out screening of the remarkable documentary Lu Olo’s Story. Many people missed out on tickets due to the film’s popularity. The President of Fretilin, Franciso ‘Lu Olo’ Guterres attended the screening and received a standing ovation at the end of the film. Dili Film Works would like to thank Lu Olo for his support and wishes him well in the upcoming Presidential campaign. Thank you also to former Prime Minister, Mari Alkatiri, who also attended the screening. The film featured Mari Alkatiri as well as Xanana Gusmao and is a rare document of the early days of independence in Timor Leste. The film will be repeated later in the year.

Next week another film about our region STRANGE BIRDS IN PARADISE about West Papua. Book now to avoid disappointment. Tickets are $10 and can be delivered to you. Contact Nick on 749 1240 or email
