Year: 2017
Director: Ismail Basbeth

The Carousel Never Stops Turning weaves together the lives of individuals from diverse backgrounds and circumstances – from an accountant grappling with the ghost of his late wife to a pair of newlyweds visiting the zoo on their honeymoon; from a girl pop group embarking on a soul-searching cross-country road trip to a prostitute yearning for liberation. Their journeys of discovery take place within the same vehicle but reveal narratives of Indonesia from different perspectives: economy, politics, arts and culture, society, laws, and history, all influencing each other in fragments.

The fourth feature of Indonesian director Ismail Basbeth competed at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival and screened at the 2017 Tokyo International Film Festival.

This screening is part of the programme Reciprocal 2024. For more screenings of the programme, please click here.
