“Lukas’ Moment” Film Terakhir di Program BSF

 

Cinema Lovers Community (CLC) Purbalingga kembali menggelar program pemutaran film bulanan Bamboe Shocking Film (BSF). Pemutaran akan digelar pada Sabtu, 25 April 2009, di Café Bamboe, Jl. Jend. Sudirman 126 Purbalingga, mulai pukul 19.30 WIB sampai selesai.

 

Bulan ini, pemutaran memasuki BSF ke-17 yang berarti sudah tiga tahun program BSF digelar sejak 2007 silam. Di bulan ini pula, CLC berniat menghentikan program bulanan BSF untuk beberapa saat berbenah secara internal. “Pasca Purbalingga Film Festival yang akan digelar pada 21-23 Mei 2009, kami akan mengoreksi program-program yang telah digelar selama ini sembari mempersiapkan program ke depan,” tutur Manager Program CLC Trisnanto Budidoyo.

 

Bagi kami, lanjut Trisnanto, rentang tiga tahun waktu yang cukup panjang untuk setiap bulan menyiapkan sebuah program pemutaran. Terkadang melewati penonton yang banyak bahkan berlebih, tak jarang pula dengan penonton yang pas-pasan. Namun bukan hanya kuantitas penonton yang menjadi ukuran keberhasilan. “Dikala penonton yang sedikit namun punya keseriusan dalam menonton, itu juga penanda berhasil,” ujarnya.

 

Dokumenter Papua

Film yang akan diputar terakhir di program BSF adalah film dokumenter besutan sutradara Aryo Danusiri bertajuk “Lukas’ Moment”. Film berdurasi 60 menit ini berlatar cerita Papua, provinsi paling ujung timur Indonesia.

 

Namun, jangan disangka film ini memvisualkan eksotisme alam Papua atau sekedar menampilkan wajah etnik dan cenderung primitif secara penghidupan dari negeri Papua seperti stereotipe film-film dokumenter lainnya.

 

Film yang diproduksi tahun 2005 dan sempat menyabet penghargaan The Best Student Film di RAI International Ethnographic Film Festival Oxford, UK ini bercitra lain. “Lukas’ Moment” berkisah mengenai perjalanan Lukas, pemuda nelayan suku Marind yang  tinggal di pinggiran kota Merauke, Papua. Drama dibangun dari tekadnya membangun usaha distribusi udang yang mandiri, lepas dari ketergantungan jaringan bisnis tengkulak yang menjerat.

 

Aryo Danusiri yang juga seorang antropolog dalam film karyanya ini menangkap tokoh Lukas dari kehidupan keseharian yang intim dan observasional. “Lukas’ Moment” menjadi karya master tesis Aryo di jurusan Antropologi Visual di salah satu universitas di Norwegia.

Film dokumenter lain yang diputar adalah soal perseteruan babak baru para pegiat CLC dengan Satpol PP Pemkab Purbalingga. Film berdurasi 7 menit ini mengungkap saat-saat pelarangan pemasangan baliho Purbalingga Film Festival 2009 hingga baliho berhasil dinaikkan. Untuk kemudian diturunkan oleh Satpol PP keesokan harinya.

 

Pemutaran kedua film dokumenter ini diharapkan membuka mata kita bersama arti penting film itu sendiri, sebagai bukti otentik terkait kisah, kehidupan, dan sejarah manusia.

“Elephants” @ 35e FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DU FILM INDEPENDANT

12 09 2008

http://www.centremultimedia.org/Featured-Country.185.0.html

The 35th International Independent Film Festival is one of the most important cinema and video events on the international scene. From November 4 to 9, Brussels will become a meeting point for filmmakers worlwide. More than 25 countries will take part in the 2008 edition of the Festival.

This year, the Festival present a special focus about the Indonesian films

AUDIENCE

The Festival is followed by the Belgian cinema and audio-visual press as a whole, but also by people world-wide and particulary from Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa. In the audience are professionals in the audio-visual field, as well as young creators of the new generation (filmmakers, producers, actors, movie technicians, artists…). The total audience should be around 20.000 people, in addition to the young filmmakers who take part in the Festival.

Considering the important role of Brussels as the capital of Europe, the focus of Taiwan productions will have a tremendous effect at international level, as our Festival welcomes each year representatives of the most important cinema organisations and festivals world-wide.

DISCOVERY ABOVE ALL

An unmissable rendez-vous for independent filmmaking, films that never go out of fashion, a meeting place for open exchange, the Brussels International Independent Film Festival is an oasis of liberty for people whose concern is with inventing the cinema of tomorrow.

Open screens for auteur cinema, blending genres, rediscovering forgotten filmmakers or directors who have been pushed to one side, provoking cultural shocks and favouring the emergence of younger generations who know nothing of cultural or national boundaries are what the festival is all about. Other festivals are about celebrity: this one is about invention. This willing openness to all is accompanied by a rejection of glitzy premieres. That’s the essence of the festival: seeking out the new pulse on a planetary scale.

3 COMPETITIONS

These 3 competitions, all placed under the sign of tolerance and exchange, have important prizes and one primary objective: launching the maximum number of films and videos on the national and international markets, and attracting attention to new and significant forms of filmmaking

  • National Competition: open to Belgian shorts and medium-length format
  • International Competition: open to international short, medium and full-length formats.
  • Filmmaking by the Deaf: This competition exists to encourage the deaf and the hard of hearing to meet through films and videos which reflect the special point of view the deaf have on the world, and is open to any film about deafness. This year the competition will be divided into two sections, one for work by the deaf, the other for work by the non-deaf.
