Zubrycki’s first film after his time as a commissioning editor at SBS in the late 1990s follows Nobel Peace Prize-winner José Ramos-Horta during the tumultuous final stretch of his 24-year campaign to help secure the independence of his homeland, East Timor, from Indonesian occupation. Ramos-Horta granted extensive access to his public and personal life, helping to reveal the charismatic and complex individual behind the political activist. Winner of the 2000 AFI Awards for Best Documentary and Best Director in a Documentary.
