    A love story written in blood ...

    East Timor's historic first feature film, Beatriz's War (Luigi Acquisto & Bety Reis, 2013) – or A Guerra da Beatriz – is the haunting, passionate story of one woman's conviction to remain true to the man she loves and the country for which she has fought. It is a bold reworking of the sixteenth-century French 'Martin Guerre' story. In this adaptation, the original story is transferred to Portuguese Timor during the Indonesian Occupation of the small nation. Sixteen years after Beatriz's husband disappears during a brutal massacre by occupying Indonesian forces, she is troubled by his mysterious return. Is he the young man she'd lost, or is he an impostor?
