“Accusations of genocide fly in this disturbing and controversial British documentary by David Munro and John Pilger who had to film sequences in secret. According to them the Indonesian government has been systematically destroying the native population of East Timor, an island which they took over from the Portuguese in 1975. Since that time, one third of the population, approximately 200,000 Timorese have been slaughtered. The Timorese are not related to the Japanese. Just off shore from Timor are large underwater oil fields. The filmmakers make disturbing accusations regarding the complacency of the U.S., British, and Australian governments who purportedly knew about the killing and did nothing. Included in the film is footage of the 1991 massacre, and interviews.” (Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide | Review Summary)

O filme Buried Alive: The Story of East Timor de Gil Scrine foi melhor, mas infelizmente, ainda não é disponível em DVD.

O filme Death of a Nation ignorou completamente a culpabilidade de Portugal em 1975, que Mário Lemos Pires descreveu como 'uma política de abandonamento'.

Quanto à descrição do filme, deve dizer Javanese, não 'Japanese', embora seja errado para dizer que todos os indonésios são javaneses.

Ken, obrigada pela opinião e correcção. Mas, tratando-se de uma citação, manterei o texto. Fica o seu apontamento.
