*SINGAPORE PREMIERE*
Dry Season in My House (2017)
Director: Wregas Bhanuteja
Runtime: 2 minutes
Country: Indonesia
Language: No dialogue
Rating: PG

Showtimes:
4 Aug, Sat - 5PM

Synopsis
A woman surprises a man with a sensual dance in the wrong season. She made the rain, yet the dancing comes of itself. An independent dance from an independent woman; a dance not of the Indonesian tradition but, nonetheless, one that could only be performed by an Indonesian woman.

Another Trip to the Moon (2015)
Original Title: Menuju rembulan
Director: Ismail Basbeth
Runtime: 80 minutes
Country: Indonesia
Language: Indonesian with English subtitles
Rating: TBA

Showtimes:
4 Aug, Sat - 5PM

Synopsis
A dreamy absurdist film set somewhere in between a mythical past and a fantastical present, Another Trip to the Moon is an irreverent take on traditional Indonesian legends, replete with hopping plastic bunnies and a grave-robbing UFO. Subverting the androcentrism typical of these legends, the film revolves around Asa, the daughter of a village seer. Though expected to be her mother’s replacement, Asa defies her fate and retreats into the forest with her girlfriend, Laras. There, the two share an idyllic life of sleeping, hunting, bathing, eating, and humming beautiful songs. However, tragedy strikes when Asa’s mother interrupts this paradisal situation.

About SEA of Sadness
2- 28 Aug | Oldham Theatre

With more than 20 years’ experience working on Southeast Asian cinema as a senior programmer at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Gertjan Zuilhof has developed close relationships with many of the region’s filmmakers and affinities with their works. The SEA of Sadness programme is a culmination of his curatorial experience. Previously presented at the 2018 edition of the Taiwan International Documentary Festival, the programme is now being presented for the first time in Southeast Asia at the Asian Film Archive.

The films selected for the programme include classic masterpieces as well as contemporary work from promising young directors; both feature-length films and shorts; and works of all genres, ranging from “pure” documentary to fiction films and experimental videos. These films represent the high quality of original work produced in Southeast Asia over the last two decades.

The sadness indicated in the title of the programme does not mean only that the films are concerned with sadness as an emotion, but also that they are sensitive, personal, and made with genuine feeling, delving deep into the memories and hopes of the people in the countries they were made in.
