SCREENING @ FAB – 5pm Sunday 30th August
Come celebrate the 10th anniversary of the East Timorese Independence Referendum with the premiere screening of ‘Chasing the President’.
Shot just last month on location in East Timor this wild and wonderful short documentary follows Hollywood film producer Jan Sharp as she accompanies Jose Ramos Horta on a peace building mission into the remote border districts of Asia’s newest nation.
Marvel as the Presidential convoy of 15 4WD vehicles winds its way through isolated mountain villages to Balibo and beyond. Witness very personal interactions between local tribes people and their esteemed President. Experience the thrill of staying with Ramos Horta in a hotel run by a Malaysian ladyboy. And engage in exciting conspiracy theories concocted in the fertile imagination of Ms Sharp.
All this and more in Chasing The President.
