Director Statement

Cayasukma (The Lightdancer) is the latest short film from Andra Fembriarto. It is a family drama wrapped in a fantasy world inspired by the cultures of Indonesia. Andra has wanted to make a fantasy film for a long time and finally he received help from various creative partners to make his vision come true.

Indonesia has a history of making fantastic films however those films are wrapped mostly within action/martial arts or horror genres. Andra wants to see a fresh interpretation of fantasy that is both relevant to new Indonesian film audience and have strong ties with Indonesian culture.

Cayasukma is 16:45 minutes long but hopefully it will last longer in the heart of the audience and ultimately contribute to the expanding fantasy film collection in the Indonesian cinema.
