Brothers is a 1982 Australian film directed by Terry Bourke. It includes a re-enactment of the 1975 murder of the Balibo Five in East Timor.
The script was based on a novel Reflex by Australian actor and writer Roger Ward. It was about a photojournalist in Vietnam inspired by Sean Flynn. Ward almost got up a film based on the novel in the early 70s with Jack Thompson in the lead but it did not happen. Ward spent the next few years trying to set up the film elsewhere and eventually sold it to Terry Bourke, who rewrote Ward's script extensively.
The movie was shot in the Philippines, Taihape and Narrabeen.Chard Hayward as Adam WildIvar Kants as Kevin WildMargaret Laurence as Lani AvesonJennifer Cluff as Alison LewisAlyson Best as Jenine WilliamsJoan Bruce as Mrs WilliamsLes Foxcroft as Jim WilliamsJames Elliott as Rev. Maynard
