-. Petualangan Menangkap Petir (The Adventure of the Thunder Catcher), Dir: Kuntz Agus, 2018. 1 hour 30 mins. PetirPetualangan Menangkap Petir tells the story of Sterling a young boy whose family moves back to Indonesia from Hong Kong. Addicted to social media and living much of his world online, it is something of a shock when he goes to stay at his grandfather’s house in Central Java. However, Sterling soon makes new friends in the real world and that’s when the adventures begin. Drawing on the legend of Ki Ageng Solo, this funny and engaging film will also delight for its images from the foothills of Mount Merapi. A children’s film that will be enjoyed by kids and parents alike.

-. Harimau TjampaHarimau Tjampa (Tiger from Tjampa) Dir D. Djajakusuma, 1953, 1 hour 37 mins, with English subtitles. This black and white movie from 1953 is regarded a classic of Indonesian cinema. Set in West Sumatra in the1930s. The film tells the story of Lukman, a young man who learns pencak silat in order to avenge his father’s murder. With numerous scenes of the martial art in practice and with the Minangkabau setting this is an important early example of the portrayal of traditional regional culture in film. While the condition of the film is not perfect, this is a must see for all fans of Indonesian cinema.
