Orang Rimba

Tengganai Besemen, the elder of the Orang Rimba faces a dilemma. Orang Rimba is one of the tribes in Indonesia, living in the forest in Bukitduabelas National Park in Jambi, Indonesia. However, the area of forest where they live is now shrinking because it has been converted into oil palm plantations. Conflicts ensued between the Orang Rimba and palm oil plantation companies. Some of the Orang Rimba have moved to become villagers. But because they are used to living in the forest, they have difficulty living because they have no skills. Tengganai Besemen is also worried about the fate of Orang Rimba children, such as Bedugo, Bekajang and Bejeling in the future.

Director Biography - Lucky Pransiska

My first introduction to the visual world was in 1995, starting with photography. Through photography I had a way to voice my heart. I then took up photography professionally in 2004 as a photojournalist in national media in Indonesia. Then in 2015, I became interested in the audio-visual medium and I tried to create video journalistic content. I became increasingly interested in the audio-visual medium and began to explore filmmaking. In 2022, I ventured to make a documentary film for the first time. The movie I sent to this festival was my first movie with all the limitations of equipment, funds, and human resources. I see a lot of stories that can be told in documentary films, especially in the country where I live, Indonesia. I want to voice my heart more and more widely to the outside world through movies.
