Available for download as audio, video, or original.

Q&A

Available for download as audio, video, or original.

This experimental documentary film will trace the challenges facing Indonesian immigrants to Philadelphia, engaging with and translating their experiences  into cinematic discourse, as they navigate the post-9/11 terrain of “illegality,” and negotiate conflicts within their own community. The project is also an attempt to reflect on ethnography and filmmaking as constantly, historically developing practices with their own inherent paradoxes and underlying dependencies on economies of imagery, sound, information and theory.

This film is part of a collaborative research project conducted by Rachmi Diyah Larasati (Theatre Arts and Dance) and Dag Yngvesson (filmmaker, Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature), Degung Santikarma (George Mason University), and Professor Leslie Dwyer (George Mason University).

Larasati and Yngvesson screen the film and discuss the challenges these immigrants face. Footage of the work in progress has been omitted.

This event occurred Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 4:00 pm in 125 Nolte.
