Beatriz’s War 

Beatriz’s War 

Cinema Ventures in partnership with BEMAC presents: Beatriz’s War. 

Beatriz’s War is a haunting, passionate story of one woman’s conviction to remain true to the man she loves and the country for which she fought. It is a bold reworking of the 16th century French ‘Martin Guerre’ story.

In this adaptation the original story is transposed to Portuguese Timor during the Indonesian occupation of the small colony. Beatriz’s young husband disappears during a brutal massacre by occupying Indonesian forces, sixteen years later she is troubled by his return; is this mysterious stranger her husband, an impostor, or a spirit?

“A riveting tale told simply and with real emotion” – The Guardian.

Film followed by Q&A with Co-producer Lurdes Pires
