A film about Indonesia, street music, love, prison, politics, sex, corruption, rice fields, globalization and heartache!
The three characters
Boni, Ho & Titi are three gifted, charismatic street musicians in Jakarta. JALANAN follows these young marginalized musicians and their never before seen sub-culture, while also painting a striking, moody and intimate portrait of Indonesia’s frenzied capital city.
“Stunningly vivid and full of energy... JALANAN is one of the finest portrayals of Indonesian life to emerge for outside audiences in years. Shorn of stereotypes and finely observed, it presents a gritty reality that even Indonesians find shocking.”
– Michael Vatikiotis, Tempo Magazine, Nov 2013
