2 December, 2015

A film made in 2015 to document the life of Carmel Budiardjo, now aged 90, and how she came to be a prisoner in Indonesia from 1968 to 1971. On her release and return to London she set up TAPOL to campaign for the release of other political prisoners. 

TAPOL has campaigned on various human rights issues in Indonesia. These have included East Timor, Aceh and West Papua.
