Passabe @ The Arts House
The remote village of Passabe lies on the precarious border between East and West Timor. It is a battle-scarred community with a horrific past.
In the run-up to the vote for independence in 1999, Passabe was a base for hundreds of pro-Indonesia militiamen who participated in a rampage of violence that climaxed in a bloody massacre. Five years on, one man publicly owns up to his role in the massacre, an explosive move that exposes him to persecution on both sides. Shot over a year, this film documents a quest for forgiveness and redemption, and hopefully, reconciliation.
Tickets are priced at $8 and $6 (for students) and can be purchased via phone, fax, email or directly at The Arts House.
