November 28 Independence Day in Viqueque

Cinema Loro sa'e was pleased to be asked to join the November 28 Independence Day Celebrations held in Kraras, Viqueque region. 

The event spanned a few days, the plan was to screen all three noghts, but when rain stopped play on Tuesday 26th, Wednesday 27th became a double feature - the locally made Dili Film Works "A Guerra da Beatriz" and Rob Connelly's "Balibo" were shown to a huge crowd estimated at just under 3000 people! Then on Thursday night Peter Gordon's "Bloodshot" screened to a smaller crowd, but still around 1200 people.

It was very exciting to be part of the official program, Angelo and Lou were pleased to have such large crowds enjoying the films. The many helpers were also greatly appreciated.

Tuesday the 12th they screened Blood Shot again in Matai, to a huge crowd of 1600. This was Santa Cruz Masacra memorial day, so it was very important to show this film.

The Cinema Loro sa'e team has just returned from Baucau where crowds of several hundred each night enjoyed A Guerra da Beatriz.

The week ahead in Baucau after a great week in Manatuto including a visit from the President.

Cinema Loro sa'e have arrived in Baucau today and will be screening A Guerra da Beatriz throughout the week, starting tonight in Caicido.

Last week was a great success in Manatuto, with screenings taking place to crowds of 2000 in Manatuto town, then 1200 in Laleia, 1700 in Cairui, 500 in Laclo and finally Laclubar to 1100 people.

It was very exciting to have President Taur Matan Ruak in Laclubar attend the screening on Saturday night to enjoy A Guerra da Beatriz with the locals. What a fantastic country, where the President can relax with the locals at an outdoor cinema to enjoy a film!

The Assistant DA and Police Commandant were very helpful throughout the week and Angelo and Lou extend their thanks.
