Apocalypse Films producer Tuuli Forward‘s latest short film, Mensajeiru (The Messenger), recently had its world premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
The film, written and directed by Timor-Leste native Francisca Maia, was filmed in Timor in 2013.

The Messenger showcases naturalistic cinematography by Max Davis and authentic production design by Melchior Dias Fernandes. Congratulations to Tuuli, Francisca and her team.
