Abstract:

This powerful documentary about the East Timor crisis makes the claim that Australian foreign policymakers sacrificed human rights for their own political gain. Australia had spent millions nurturing a special relationship with Indonesia, creating a three-pronged policy of engagement: it trained Indonesia's soldiers in an attempt to instill more democratic values; negotiated a security pact to take pressure off Australian defense spending; and scored access to Timorese oil. In revelations from intelligence agents, informants, and previously unseen government reports, the film shows just how far Australia went to protect its relationship with Indonesia, to the tragic detriment of the people of East Timor.
