BEATRIZ’S WAR

(A Guerra Da Beatriz)

Q&A event screening exclusively at Cinema Paradiso

Thursday July 31 – tickets on sale now!
East Timor’s award-winning first feature film, Beatriz’s War (A Guerra da Beatriz), will screen exclusively at Cinema Paradiso on Thursday July 31. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Luigi Acquisto who co-directed the film with East Timor’s Bety Reis, and co-wrote the script with East Timorese actress Irim Tolentino (who plays Beatriz).
Beatriz’s War is the haunting, passionate story of one woman’s conviction to remain true to the man she loves and the country for which she fought. A bold reworking of the 16th century French ‘Martin Guerre’ story, in this adaptation the original story is transposed to Portuguese Timor during the Indonesian occupation of the small colony. Beatriz’s young husband disappears during a brutal massacre by occupying Indonesian forces, sixteen years later she is troubled by his sudden return; is this man her husband or an impostor? The mysterious stranger presents a chilling metaphor for the unresolved struggles and passions that challenge a new nation’s independence, and a woman’s heart.
This astonishing film from East Timor was made guerrilla-style by the very men and women who fought in the armed resistance and the clandestine movement during the small country’s twenty-four year long war with Indonesia.
Following a sold-out season in Dili, Beatriz’s War has already seen by over 100,000 people across Timor-Leste during the dry season travelling outdoor cinema program of Cinema Lorosaé.
