This is a collection of short clips I took during my 3-week stay in Timor-Leste. It features Dili, the country’s capital, Maliana, and Jaco Island. This video is inspired not only by the natural beauty of Timor-Leste but also by its stories of struggle, independence, and state-building.
The music used is entitled “O Hele Ho,” which in Tetun means “Small Streams”. It is one of the the popular traditional Timorese songs representing patriotism especially during the resistance period. Its message is strong in calling Timorese to unite for their motherland, significant before and remains to be significant now.
