Tamu Agung – Exalted Guest (1955)
Director-Usmar Ismail
100 minutes

Filmed in 1955 by Usmar Ismail, regarded as a founding father of the Indonesian cinema, Tamu Agung (Exalted Guest) is about the much awaited visit of a dignitary from Jakarta to a small isolated village, ’Sukaslamet’ (Playing it Safe) near a mountainous area in East Java.

The dignitary fails to come, and in the atmosphere of heightened expectation, a pedlar of herbal medicines is mistaken for the visiting VIP, and is accorded a ceremonial welcome in the most elaborate Javanese style.
