(6/21/2004)

Jane Walters' film, Bali: Hope in Paradise had its international premiere screening in Manhattan, New York City, on April 25, 2004, at the New York International Independent Film Festival. Over 300 eager viewers attended the screening, giving the documentary the distinction of being the only festival film with a sold out theater audience. Audience members included Indonesian diplomats from the United Nations, directors of Cable News Network New York (CNN), news bureau chiefs, and various friends, students and supporters of Indonesia.

Narrated by Asha Gill of Discovery Channel, with music contributed by Sting, Bali: Hope in Paradise won the New York Film Festival's Best Documentary Award in the category of International Films.

The Bali bombing and its aftermath launched Walters as a documentary filmmaker, showing the horrors of terrorism and its affect on the lives of innocent people. After the bomb blast she and her friend, Robert Koster, were first on the scene with a camera, their footage of the outrage showing around the world via Reuters World News. However, although global newscasts recorded the death and injury to foreign tourists in great detail, they mentioned little or nothing about the impact on the people of Bali. Jane resolved to tell those stories. This is her first independent documentary.

Research led Walters to Asriani Kebon (Sri), a 22 year old Balinese princess with an Australian mother and a Balinese father. Bali: Hope in Paradise is the powerful story of how Sri Kebon and Bali's life changed in the wake of the Bali bombing.

Jane Walters grew up in British Columbia, Canada, and graduated from Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver. During her university days, Walters was active in community television, working as both a producer and presenter. Six years ago she married and moved to Bali where she began raising her family and running a boutique hotel.
