15 May 2013
On Saturday 18 May 2013, Dutch documentary Promised Paradise, directed by Leonard Retel Helmrich (trilogy Eye of the Day (2001), Shape of the Moon (2004) and Position among the Stars (2010) and his new film RAW HERRING) will be shown at UnionDocs in Brooklyn, NY. The director will be attending the screening.
Promised Paradise premiered at the Jakarta International Film Festival in December 2006 but was forbidden immediately by Indonesian authorities. The film follows a traditional Indonesian puppeteer and troubadour, the dynamic Agus Nur Amal, as he attempts to track down the terrorists who masterminded the 2002 Bali bombings (both living and dead).
