Recent short films from
the Indonesian New Wave
"Something invigorating and full-bodied is brewing in Indonesia, and
it’s not a cup of mocha java. It’s a cinematic resurgence, the biggest
since the early 2000s, when Rudy Soedjarwo’s 2002 teen romance
ada dengan cinta?" (What’s With Love?) rocked the Southeast Asia market
while in the same year Riri Riza’s “Eliana Eliana” stunned the festival
circuit with femme-centric social realism." (
