Join our Premiere and Discussion event!

We cordially invite you to join our online premiere and discussion on our animated documentary shorts: Konta-sai and 8:45 on 4 May 2021 at 15.30 (Jakarta time) or 17.30 (Dili time).

Documentary

Through our project, Making Right to Truth Tangible, Asia Justice and Rights worked closely with Commission for the Disappeared and Victims of Violence Aceh (KontraS Aceh) in Indonesia and Asosiasaun Chega! Ba Ita (ACbit) in Timor-Leste to document stories of survivors, facilitate dialogue and engage with the local authorities in addressing past human rights violation.

We produced two animated documentary shorts, Konta-sai and 8.45, as instruments to encourage survivors to speak out about their life journeys and experiences, as well as providing space for self-reflection and mutual support they found along the way to help them fighting against the long-standing impunity.

Story

The animated documentaries “Konta-sai” and “8.45” are based on real-life accounts happened in Aceh (Indonesia) and Timor-Leste, each during the conflict period.

All details told in the documentaries are told from the survivors’ own voices.

Discussion Guide

We invite you to screen Konta-sai and 8:45 with your family, friends, community, organisation and youth groups to help us spread the stories of the dark chapters in our history and to honor the bravery of those who are willing to share them.

We are glad to provide the documentaries and the screening kit (press release, posters) that might help you gain better understanding about the issue as well as full picture of the conflicts and how massive the impact had been felt until today. If you are interested, please let us know the details of your screening plan, link us to any blog posts and show us some pictures (if you have watched it), and do tell us about how it goes and what touches you the most.

A study guide that contains information of the human rights issues in Timor-Leste and Aceh (Indonesia) that was depicted in the documentaries will soon be launched as companion piece — the guide will also explain our process of developing the animated shorts. It is our hope that “Konta-sai” and “8.45” can be the first step in putting the spotlight again to the hardly spoken history and spark many discussions for the time to come.

We’ll get back to you soon with the detail of how to watch or to screen these documentaries once we get the inquiry from the form below. We have provided a sample program here to help you plan the screening.
