CROSSCUT ASIA #03: Colorful Indonesia Lineup Announced

September 21, 2016

The Japan Foundation announces the lineup for CROSSCUT ASIA #03: Colorful Indonesia. The third volume of the CROSSCUT ASIA series, launched by the Japan Foundation Asia Center and the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2014 to showcase Asian films, now turns its attention to recent films from Indonesia.

Known as a nation of “tolerant Islam,” Indonesia is made up of more than 10,000 islands and has regional cultural differences that make it the ultimate land of diversity. The Foundation and TIFF have been presenting outstanding Indonesian films, reflecting the nation’s diverse culture, since the 1980s. In this year’s focus, we will showcase 11 films, from the latest works by well-established directors to the unique, ambitious works by up-and-coming directors.

In the showcase, three films by Teddy Soeriaatmadja, whose provocative and powerful work is internationally acclaimed, will be highlighted. Along with Soeriaatmadja’s so-called Trilogy About Intimacy, the lineup also includes such rising female directors as Nia Dinata, a pioneer in LGBT films, and Kamila Andini, of The Mirror Never Lies.
Please see the following pages for the details. During the festival, some of the cast and crew members will attend the Q&A sessions and symposium.
