Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival 2008


Originally filmed in 1991, this film bears witness to the testimonies of Indonesian artists about the repressive period of the Suharto’s New Order regime. The film gives voice to the various performers who joined together in the group Kantata Takwa. Their big concert, initially held in the Senayan Stadium in Jakarta in April 1991 and banned after its second performance (in Surabaya), expressed opposition to the government in that period through poetry and songs laden with theatrical acts. After being held up for close to 18 years due to varying difficulties, including the economic crisis in Indonesia and its aftermath, the film was at last completed in 2008.
