Director Statement

Kumbah (The flushing) is a first of many short-film that is made in a grand scheme of producing our first feature film. Kumbah is a teaser of a style that the director is exploring. A fusion or balance between reality and the opposite. The opposite can be represented by many terms that include; fantasy, subconscious or a parallel universe and even spiritual belief.

Kumbah is provocative and ambitious in certain aspects; like how it tried to explore a whole storyline within the compound of a single setting. How we try to overcome the limitation of space to ‘speak’ volume in terms of the visual language. This short film is filled with subtext from the visual and even the meaning of each scenes and dialogues in a fast-paced tempo.

It’s provocative too in terms of the taboo issue that is being portrayed. Issues of the country. This shorts layered multiple small issues/messages underneath the main issue of guilt and redemption.

He hope this shorts will finally found it’s audience and spark his journey to bigger platforms in the future.
