This is an intimate and confronting account of the last six months of
Indonesia's occupation of East Timor. Filmmaker Carmela Baranowska is the
only person to have documented this period. She first travelled to East
Timor in March 1999, working as a one person crew. The footage includes
eyewitness accounts of the role the Indonesian military played in a
systematic campaign of destruction, murder and terror. "We may all die",

Originally screened on SBS TV, Part 2, "The Law of Violence" is 32 minutes
