Director Statement

The idea of this film came to me right after I moved back to Indonesia after I finished my Ph.D. in the USA. While dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and my own reverse cultural shock, I realize that I have a lot of criticism and hopelessness that I can only deal with by making this film. I hope what happens in this film will not happen in the future, but it can at least be an artifact that memorializes the absurdity we face in the year 2021.
