Sound of Unheared Knock

Two Girls, Ami and Kania grew up in a room all their lives. As a result, they do not recognize the concept of “outside” and “inside” space. For them this world is just a kitchen and a room. They never know what the sky, the yard, even, the sun is. However, there is a difference in attitude between Ami and Kania. Kania always obeys and agrees with what she says. But Ami is easily curious. If something is forbidden she does it instead.

Director Statement

I want to make a short film that reflects myself as well as criticizes it. I am a person who is thirsty for knowledge and likes to show off the knowledge I get. Through this film I made, I wanted to explore the impact and benefits of gaining knowledge.

In this film, I want to make myself and the audience think and question whether the truth and knowledge that is currently being sought after is worth pursuing. I made the main character unable to return to the phase where he has not gained the knowledge outside the room/truth that he knew for a long time.

Sound Of Unheared Knock is not really a fun film, but it will give the audience a physiological perspective. This film also depicts a dystopian world that gives rise to enigma - enigma (symbolic meaning) that triggers the character to perform axiology such as how they acquire knowledge or knowledge and how the character gains their new knowledge by opposing the prevailing moral rules and their behavior. agreed a long time ago. From these aspects, this film is able to combine morality (ethics) and aspects of beauty (aesthetics).

Three characters in the movie; The Mother (played by Mrs. Isti Retno Wulandari) and two daughters Ami (Oxi Qintan) and Kania (Naomy Tiffany) represent how human consciousness deal with knowledge. Mother as the super-ego, Ami as the id and Kania as the ego. They live in an enclosed room which slightly modeled after Plato's cave. The "Enigmatic Being" represents many thing; the norm, social construction, intellectual capacity etc. If you pay attention closely, the pencil Ami uses to draw is a metaphor for literacy
