Experiencing Interruptions?

The Puppet Master Of Bandung

Every time I pass through Simpang Dago, Bandung, Indonesia, I see him: the puppet master. His talented hands work ceaselessly to create wonderful works of art from salvaged materials that evoke awe and joy in everyone who sees them. I immediately became fascinated by his skills and had a strong desire to record his story. This documentary is an example of how art is interwoven into simple lives. I started a path of exploration and dove deeply into the intriguing realm of the puppet master with the support of my beloved family and friends. My love for his work intensified as I discovered more about his artistic processes, approaches and methods. I was very moved by the commitment and creativity that goes into his very unique approach towards busking, and I felt that I had to tell the world about him and his creations.
