Sgiff: Documentary ‘You and I’ Delves Into Indonesia’s Dark Political History
Fanny Chotimah’s Indonesian documentary “You and I,” which won the Asian Perspective Award at Korea’s Dmz Docs Festival, is one of the highlights of the Singapore International Film Festival’s Asian Vision strand.

The film tells the story of the friendship between Kaminah and Kusdalini, which existed for more than 50 years since they met as political prisoners in 1965.

The 1965-66 period was a fraught one for Indonesia where the mass killings of Communists and several ethnic groups eventually led to the overthrow of President Sukarno’s government.

The film is produced by Yulia Evina Bhara, Amerta Kusuma and Tazia Teresa Darryanto under the banner KawanKawan Media (Yosep Anggi Noen’s Locarno-winner “The Science of Fictions”), in collaboration with Partisipasi Indonesia. It is a product of several project labs and grants including Festival Film Dokumenter, Docs By The Sea, Dmz Docs Fund, the Akatara Financing Forum and the Super8mm Studio Foundation.
