On the Origin of Fear

  • Indonesia
Audio Tracks 

The films in this extended focus on Indonesian documentary were produced in a variety of styles, formats, and epochs by independent filmmakers living and working in Indonesia. As such, the quality of some of the streamable film files may vary. In all cases, we have strived to present them in the best copies available at the time of the focus.

One soldier and one prisoner. Two soldiers and one film director. That day, they talk to each other very intimately: about pain, loyalty, betrayal, drama and terror.
