Edwin | Indonesia, Germany, Hong Kong, China | 2012 | 95’ | In Indonesian | English subtitles
Free versus bound, intimate versus unfamiliar, natural versus artificial – in this dreamlike story director Edwin shows that life fluctuates between these opposites.
A 3-year-old child wanders about in Jakarta’s Ragunan Zoo, in the dark, way after hours. Meet Lana, abandoned by her father. A friendly giraffe trainer takes her under his care. For years the only world she knows is the limited grounds of the zoo. It is a familiar, safe world. Years later, Lana, meanwhile a somewhat shy, young woman, meets a street artist, a magician in a cowboy suit. He takes her into the outside world, a world with many dark sides.
Last year’s World Cinema Amsterdam screened Edwin’s short Roller Coaster, part of the omnibus film Belkibolang.
