"The Shadow Over East Timor" was the first Australian film to comprehensively examine the genocide and resistance in East Timor following the Indonesian invasion in 1975. By 1990, close to one third – 200,000 – of the Timorese people had died because of war and starvation. The conflict was perhaps the least reported in modern history. The documentary includes interviews with refugees living in Australia who testify to what they saw: the massacres, the famine, the corruption and the resistance – in the mountains and urban centres – where courageous public acts of protest helped focus the outside world’s attention on East Timor.
