It's Not Raining Outside
Remember that Indonesia is a country with limitations and censorship. So look how a young film maker manages to get a man and woman into a hotel room.
Peculiar Vacation and Other Illnesses
Another side of Indonesia. With ordinary locations around Yogyakarta (and hence not the tourist Borobudur), an original story told in fragments about an unthinkable love. A striking red sofa represents the protagonists' desire and the director's sense of humour.
Love Story Not
A compassionate double portrait of two young prostitutes, whose lives connect through Erik, a young man who charms them both for his own financial advantage.
On the Origin of Fear
Deep-seated traumas of Indonesia are rooted out when a man dubs the roles of both perpetrator and victim over a docudrama on the 1965 attempted coup.
Modest, poetically beautiful film about the life in exile of Indonesian poet Wiji Thukul who, after the demonstrations against Suharto, had to take refuge in Borneo in 1997. Sensitive portrait of a lonely poet in living fear, tormented by the desire to be reunited with his family.
