Street Punk


Street Punk! Banda Aceh
Directors - Maria Bakkalapulo and Niall Macaulay
52 minutes

Punk’s freedom of expression clashes worldwide with political and religious dogma, and in recent years punks in Aceh have been driven further underground. Punks are labelled a ‘social disease’ - life would be easier if they conformed, but this small community remains.

They made headlines in 2011 when 64 punks were taken away by the police. Punished for being punk, subjected to a “re-education” regimen. As Indonesia’s economy prospers, many are disenfranchised. Street Punk! Banda Aceh examines the changing society, and witnesses its punk community adapt, exist and find their identity in one of the country’s most restricted regions.
