I shot this little film at the waterhole in Morotai in Indonesia where General Douglas MacArthur built his wife a bathroom in World War Two. My dad camped in Morotai for three weeks in June, 1945. An image of my dad in uniform with his brother and younger sister has been at the heart of a grassroots art display I created there.
In this film I try to show what it felt like for me to have spent twenty-five years developing the abilities to create a philosophical military heritage art display in this place and plant memorial trees there with officers from the Indonesian armed services and then to have my spirit crushed when arrested by the police in Maribyrnong, Australia when I wanted to replicate those activities in my own neighbourhood.
The police arrested me to allegedly protect a female politician from the horrible danger of listening to my ideas.
Modern femocracy has gone too far and ruined too many mens lives.
Lest We Forget.:
Who. We. Are.
