FILMING THE POLITICAL, TRESPASSING RULES AND BOUNDARIES
Ariel Heryanto & Olivia Khoo
No other films have made as great a political impact upon Indonesia as Indonesia Calling (1946 Joris Ivens) and The Act of Killing (2012, Joshua Oppenheimer). Both are products of a trans-national collaboration. Interestingly, both documentaries were not the films their respective directors had originally planned to make. The opportunity to make these highly celebrated films came by accident only after their film-makers encountered obstacles which stopped or delayed them from making their originally intended films. In this short presentation, I wish compare the eventful making of these films, as well as their political significance that transcend and trespass national boundaries and loyalties.
