Back from Tour de Timor - Dili movies this weekend, September 17th-18th

Now that we have dusted off the screen from its travels in the eastern districts with the Tour de Timor, we're all set for a weekend's screenings in Dili. 

Please note that there will be NO movie screening at the Sunset Fair this Friday (September 16th). 

On Saturday night (September 17th) at Government House (Palacio do Governo), it's "Gulliver's Travels":  a fantasy comedy movie directed by Rob Letterman and very loosely based on Part One of the 18th-century novel of the same name by Jonathan Swift, though the film takes place in modern day. In "Gulliver's Travels", travel writer Lemuel Gulliver takes an assignment in Bermuda, but ends up on the island of Liliput, where he towers over its tiny citizens.
The film stars Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Billy Connolly, Catherine Tate, Chris O'Dowd, and Amanda Peet.

Screening at 7.15pm, English with Bahasa Indonesia subtitles.

On Sunday evening at 7.15pm, we'll be showing "Enchanted" at Government House. A part-animated, part-live action movie, "Enchanted" is a classic Disney fairytale set in the gritty New York City of today. It's a story about a fairytale princess (Amy Adams) from the past who is thrust into the present day by an evil queen (Susan Sarandon). Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer (Patrick Dempsey). Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world? 

Starts at 8.30pm, English with Bahasa Indonesia subtitles.
