Engaging with the world

Indonesia, the country I shed my blood to defend. Left to fend for themselves on the fringes of a society and family that have stigmatized them, Jakarta’s young punks speak up in this surprising, rivetingly full-throttle documentary. Under their inked, pierced skin and behind the subversive soundtrack, Belgian director Jimmy Hendrickx (the name screams rock’n’roll and rising star!) finds a series of sensitive universal demands, a certain state of affairs, and most of all, an intense quest for freedom. Meanwhile, not so far away, at one with the land and embracing similar ideals are the local traditional tribes, who have found freedom in perfect tune with nature.As the film is currently under re-editing process, according to the director's wishes the festival will present it as a 45 minutes cut. We apologize for the previous duration printed in the catalogue and thank you for your understanding.Presented by Film POP
