excerpt of a 30 min documentary by Patrícia Bateira
For East Timor’s Independence Day

A NATIONAL CENTRE OF CULTURE / R.T.P. co-production
With the support from the Institute Camões

It’s like a baby who stands on his own feet and tries the first steps. Not everything goes well in East Timor. But the rosters sing again freely in the youngest international democracy. Marking a catharsis period of the most recent Portuguese history, Chronicle from a Rising Nation reflects upon East-Timorese memories and traditions before the independence challenges of its people in 2002.
