Melbourne Fund Raising Dinner, June 16, 2016.

Dili Film Works is hosting a special fund raising dinner in Melbourne on June 16.  Glenn Scott, a long time supporter of Dili Film Works and Timor Leste, is kindly organising the event.  Funds raised will go towards the production of The Age of Living Dangerouslya feature film documentary.

The Age of Living Dangerously is a powerful human drama, a cold case investigation and a politically explosive story. Shirley Shackleton (84) travels to Indonesia to visit her husband’s grave. Greg Shackleton was one of five Australian based journalists killed in Portuguese Timor whilst reporting on Indonesian military incursions into the small colony in 1975. This is an unsolved mass killing and Shirley has lived for decades not knowing how her husband died or who killed him. But she does know that not long after they were killed the men’s remains were buried in a Jakarta cemetery. She has campaigned for years to have Greg’s remains repatriated to Australia. Shirley will visit the Jakarta cemetery and attempt to have Greg’s ashes returned.
