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.
