On Going Projects
Since mid 2020, I have been researching about Ratna Asmara, the first female director from Indonesia. In 2021, I joined Kelas Liarsip, where us as collective decipher the male dominated film scene in Indonesian film history. In 2022, Kelas Liarsip is able to digitize Dr. Samsi, the only film directed by Ratna Asmara that was kept in a private film archive.
Basuki Resobowo is not only known as activist, painter, and art critic, but also as the art director for the first national film, The Long March (Blood and Prayer) produced in 1950.
