~ Indonesian Film Night – Jalanan – A Music Documentary
Friday, December 4th 7 – 9 pm
Jalanan (“Streetside”) tells the captivating story of three gifted, charismatic, but marginalized street musicians in Jakarta over a tumultuous five-year period, busking on buses and the streets to eke out a tiny livelihood. Using the powerful soundtrack of the musicians’ original compositions to drive the film, this riveting documentary traces their elusive quest for identity and love in the day-to-day life of a city marked by crowding, globalization, and corruption.
