Dili, East Timor. A post-occupation playground where government and commercial interests collide.
Enter Joana: an Australian aid worker who has just arrived in the 21st century’s newest nation. There are dinner parties to host, village ceremonies to plan and a Nobel laureate to meet. As the arrival of Australia’s Foreign Minister looms, Joana must decide where her allegiances lie. It’s a decision that will take her all the way to The Hague.
Zoe Hogan’s Greater Sunrise takes us behind the closed doors of the biggest government scandal you’ve never heard of; a visiting Foreign Minister, Australia’s aid program, and billions of dollars hidden beneath the sea.
Julia Patey directs. Laurence Coy, Jose Da Costa, Cassandra Sorrell and Alexander Styliano feature.
