Konta-Sai & 8:45: Premiere and Discussion

Through our project, Making Right to Truth Tangible, Asia Justice and Rights worked closely with the Commission for the Disappeared and Victims of Violence Aceh (KontraS Aceh) in Indonesia and Asosiasaun Chega! Ba Ita (ACbit) in Timor-Leste to document stories of survivors, facilitate dialogue and engage with the local authorities in addressing past human rights violations.

We produced two animated documentary shorts, Konta-sai and 8.45, as media to encourage survivors to speak out about their life journeys and experiences, as well as to provide space for self-reflection and mutual support that they found along the way to help them fight against the long-standing impunity.

The animated documentaries “Konta-sai” and “8:45” are based on real-life accounts that happened in Aceh (Indonesia) and Timor-Leste during periods of conflict. All details told in the documentaries are told with the survivors’ own voices.
