Soe Hok Gie was an Indonesian political activist and writer, most notable for his involvement with the Jakarta student protests of the 1960s that brought down the dictatorial regime of President Sukarno. In the years following his accidental death in 1969, Gie became an icon to newer generations of young dissidents who opposed the repressive rule of Suharto and his New Order. His posthumously published diary, Catatan Seorang Demonstran (The Demonstrator’s Diary), was the inspiration for this biographical film by Riri Riza, who himself lived through the devastating student riots of May 1998, which resulted in Suharto’s resignation.

Gie serves as a creative act of documentation that continues to conjure the spirit of anak muda, a collective term signifying the transformative, uncompromising and politically-conscious youth of today’s Indonesia.


Coming of Rage: Asian Youth & Politics on Screen runs from 2 – 25 June 2023. See the full programme here.
