One of the two Timorese participants of Camp Sambel 2, Armando Barros, chat with EngageMedia about his work at Casa de Produção Audiovisual (CPA), the video camp and his plans for the future.
Casa de Produção Audiovisual (CPA) - http://www.cpatimorleste.org was born with a goal to build Timorese national identity through storytelling. In February 2004, Istória ba Futuru (History of the People), the first production of CPA was broadcasted on TVTL, the national TV network. The series consist of animation programs about popular legends as well as historical moments and figures of Timor-Leste. Istória ba Futuru blends animation programs with Timorese music, dances, and discussions on Timorese culture, traditions, and events. The programs are also used in schools and various alternative education settings as teaching materials.
