In Production

A historical short on international solidarity.

Synopsis

World War II is over in Southeast Asia. The colonial powers are trying to reclaim their wealthy empires, with Dutch ships returning to Indonesia with arms and soldiers. But Indonesian republican exiles in Australia have other ideas, as do Sydney and Brisbane waterfront strikers and filmmaker Joris Ivens with his circle of red artists. A pioneering zero-budget documentary of postcolonial solidarity.
