Margaret Mead Film Festival Presentation
"Jalanan" (2013).

Part of the 2014 Margaret Mead Film Festival
Co-presented by Margaret Mead Film Festival and Asia Society

Linder Theatre
American Museum of Natural History
Central Park West at 79th Street
New York, NY

Dir. Daniel Ziv | 2013 | 108 min. | Indonesia
U.S. premiere | Director in attendance

Part music documentary and part examination of the frenetically paced megacity of Jakarta, Jalanan tells the captivating story of Boni, Ho, and Titi, three gifted, charismatic street musicians over a tumultuous five-year period in their lives. The film deftly uses their experiences as a lens on Indonesia’s teeming capital, conjuring up a striking, moody, and intimate portrait of a place caught in the grip of globalization. Using the powerful soundtrack of the musicians' original compositions to drive the film, director Daniel Ziv traces their elusive quest for identity and love in the day-to-day of a city overrun by the effects of economic expansion and corruption.

This screening will be followed by a discussion moderated by Rachel Cooper, Director of Global Performing Arts and Special Cultural Initiatives at Asia Society New York.
