There's a film being made in town at the moment. 'Town' being a kind description for an overstuffed humpy like Darwin, it's hard not to go anywhere without bumping into Anthony LaPaglia (and friends) starring in the movie 'Balibo'. On Monday their catering van and staff cars took over our entire car park for the day. Yes, this monstrous Winnebago with 'Unit One Catering' painted on the side was dishing out chili con carne while I had to park across the street!
The film is about the Indonesian invasion of East Timor in 1975, in particular the incident at Balibo where 5 journalists (mainly Australian) were executed. They must be shooting some commando raid scenes today because I just looked my window and half a dozen Indonesian komandos were crawling across Civic Park.
