    • Synopsis
    • East Timor’s first feature film, BEATRIZ’S WAR, is the haunting passionate story of one woman’s conviction to remain true to the man she loves and the country for which she fought. It is a bold reworking of the 16th century French ‘Martin Guerre’ story. In this adaptation, it’s transposed to Portuguese Timor during the Indonesian occupation. Sixteen years after Beatriz’s husband disappears during a brutal massacre by Indonesian forces, she is troubled by his mysterious return: is he the young man she’d lost or is he an impostor?
