Their secret forbidden love went well until Ying’s friend done something that caused her parents to discover her illicit relationship. They threatened to sue Tuck Chai since having sexual relationship with underages is a serious offence. Tuck Chai’s mother offered them a monetary compensation to set things right, but they insist in suing him. Horrified by the consequences, Tuck Chai had to resort with drastic measures. Tuck Chai adalah seorang pria berusia 23 tahun yang menjalin hubungan dengan Ying, seorang murid sekolah menengah berusia 15 tahun. Cinta terlarang mereka berjalan mulus sampai ketika teman-teman sekolah Ying melakukan hal yang menyebabkan hubungan mereka diketahui oleh orangtua Ying. Mereka mengancam akan menuntut Tuck Chai karena berhubungan dengan gadis di bawah umur merupakan pelanggaran hukum yang berat.

Ketakutan akan konsekuensi yang harus dihadapinya, Tuck Chai pun terdesak dan melakukan tindakan yang tidak terduga.

  • 9. Gala Premiere - Madani Film Festival Gala Premiere 11 Letters to the President Dir.: Petr Lom Iran. 2009. Documentary. 74 min. Color. Beta SP. Persian (with English subtitles) DEC 5 / BLZ 11 / 18:30 (by invitation only) • DEC 7 / BLZ 11 / 15:30 Every year nearly 10 million Iranians send their letters to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with hopes of better lives. Despite his growing popularity, the president’s populist policies are yet to prove themselves since most Iranians are still living in poverty. Petr Lom, the director of the film, was allowed to accompany the president on several countryside trips (the only foreigner given such access), and the result is an astounding look of Iran beyond the news. Setiap tahun hampir 10 juta warga Iran mengirimkan surat kepada sang Presiden Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dengan harapan akan membawa kehidupan yang lebih baik. Walaupun popularitasnya mulai berkembang, kebijakan populis sang presiden belum dapat terbukti ampuh karena masih banyak warga Iran yang hidup dalam kemiskinan. Petr Lom, sang sutradara, adalah orang asing satu-satunya yang mendapatkan izin untuk mengikuti sang presiden dalam beberapa perjalanannya ke berbagai daerah di Iran. Hasilnya adalah sebuah dokumenter yang memperlihatkan sisi lain dari Iran yang belum pernah kita lihat sebelumnya. Petr Lom is an independent documentary director and producer. Entirely self-taught, he directs, shoots and edits his own films. He is a former academic with a Ph.D. in political philosophy from Harvard University. His previous films are BRIDE KIDNAPPING IN KYRGYZSTAN (2004), ON A TIGHTROPE (2007), YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM ALLAH (2007). The latter two films will be screened in JIFFest this year. Petr Lom will attend the screenings of the film. (screened together with YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM ALLAH)

Brian has lost his faith in Christianity since he was 12 after being humiliated by his father, a strict Catholic. During his teaching days at the school, he meets the two sisters who often recite verses from the holy Qur’an and gain simple knowledge of Islam. Each of their life journeys will never be the same again. Sebuah kisah dari tiga jiwa yang menemukan kedamaian di dalam agama. Brian kehilangan kepercayaannya pada Kristianitas sejak berusia 12 tahun saat ia dipermalukan ayahnya sendiri, seorang pemeluk Katolik yang taat. Selama masa kerjanya mengajar di sebuah sekolah, ia bertemu dua gadis kakak-beradik yang sering membacakan ayat-ayat dari Al-Qur’an, dan mendapatkan sebuah pemahaman yang sederhana tentang Islam. Perjalanan hidup mereka tidak akan pernah sama lagi. Special Mention, Asian Film Award, Tokyo International Film Festival, 2008.

  • 24. Introduction : Madani Film Festival Since the first time JIFFest was held, Islamic-themed films have always had their places in our line-ups. Islam remains one of the widely discussed subjects around the world, and films about Islam that come from both Islam-dominated countries and non-dominated ones continue to draw interests among our audiences. It was not until last year that we put up a special section on Islamic-themed films. This year, we are proud to introduce Madani Film Festival, a special film festival on films about Islam from around the world. The select international films in this festival are those that touch on the lives of Muslim around the world. The films will ideally expand and enhance general public knowledge on different sides of Muslim unlikely displayed or heard in other media. We believe that through films this issue will echo more in minds and hearts of the audiences. The festival, co-organized by Rumah Film (http://www.rumahfilm.org), is integrated as part of this year’s JIFFest programming selection. However, we plan to feature this as a separate festival next year, hoping that more audiences will discover differ- ent sides of Islamic lives worldwide. Have a good time in Madani Film Festival! Sejak pertama kali JIFFest diselenggarakan, film-film bertema Islam hampir bisa dipastikan masuk dalam jadwal pemutaran kami. Isu seputar Islam itu sendiri selalu menjadi pembicaraan hangat, dan film-film tentang Islam baik dari negara-negara Islam maupun negara-negara lainnya selalu menarik perhatian penonton JIFFest. Tahun lalu, kami menggelar sebuah seksi khusus pemutaran film-film bertama Islam. Tahun ini, dengan bangga kami mempersembahkan Madani Film Festival, sebuah festival film khusus tentang Islam dari seluruh dunia. Film-film internasional yang diputar di festival ini adalah film-film yang mengangkat kehidupan kaum Is- lam di berbagai penjuru dunia. Film-film tersebut selayaknya menambah wawasan publik tentang sisi lain kaum Islam yang jarang diangkat oleh media. Kami percaya bahwa melalu film, isu-isu seputar kaum Islam akan lebih mengena di hati dan pikiran masyarakat luas. Festival ini, yang diselenggarakan bersama Rumah Film (http://www.rumahfilm. org), menjadi salah satu bagian program JIFFest tahun ini. Namun kami berencana membuatnya sebagai festival film yang berdiri sendiri tahun depan, dengan hara- pan agar lebih banyak lagi penonton yang dapat menyaksikan film-film terpilih ini. Selamat datang dan selamat menyaksikan Madani Film Festival!

  • 43. Indonesian Feature Film Competition (FREE Screening) INTRODUCTION Two opposite things are apparent in Indonesian film scene in 2009: one is the fixed formula that leads to repetition in theme, character and plot, and on the other end is the product diversification that tends to be stronger than ever. With a particular attention to the latter, some production companies have made their sec- ond line companies to make products appealing to the mass. In some cases, this leads to putting out instant films with low production values in the market. In other cases, some try to revive Indonesian film genres of the past with contemporary language of filmmak- ing. In addition, emerging names keep popping up in film conversation, as they may be lured by the growing prospect of film business, or simply by ideas they are dying to tell. The new filmmakers opt for popular approaches in hope that their films can be seen by large number of audiences. The effort to redefine the genre goes in sync with other films that opt to remain static in their artistic achievement. Alas, the spirit to break through the convention by these new films remind us that often, success cannot always be measured by box-office receipts. In this year’s 11th JIFFest, Rumah Film helps selecting Indonesian films short-listed for Indonesian Feature Film Competition. Aside from Best Film, a new rule for Best Director award will only be given for a first or second time director. We hope that the award will encourage more new talents to come. Ada dua hal paling mencolok di industri film Indonesia tahun ini: pertama, formula “ban ber- jalan” yang semakin mapan dan terus dilakukan lewat pengulangan tema, tokoh serta rumus baku; dan kedua, diversifikasi produk yang juga menguat. Tahun ini mulai bermunculan lini produksi dari rumah produksi besar untuk kelas film yang “lebih populer” dan lebih dekat dengan selera massal. Dalam beberapa kasus, ini bisa juga berarti produk instan dengan production value yang lebih rendah. Pada kasus lain, ada yang malah mencoba menghidupkan kembali genre film Indonesia di masa lalu, dengan bahasa film yang menyesuaikan diri dengan perkembangan tema dan estetika kontemporer. Selain itu, nama-nama baru bermunculan terus, baik karena prospek bisnis film yang diang- gap baik maupun karena gagasan yang ingin mereka sampaikan. Yang unik, pendekatan populer juga menjadi pilihan utama bagi para pemain baru ini, dengan harapan film-film itu mampu bicara kepada sebanyak mungkin penonton. Usaha populerisasi dan menemukan (ulang) genre ini memang terus sejalan dengan bebera- pa film yang masih pelakukan pendekatan artistik yang ideosinkretik. Keberanian membuat terobosan yang dilakukan oleh film-film ini tetap memberi tanda bahwa ukuran keberhasilan sinema tak semata-mata berupa jumlah penonton. Dalam edisi ke-sebelas JIFFest, Rumah Film menyeleksi film-film Indonesia untuk dikompetisi- kan di Indonesian Feature Film Competition guna mencatat perkembangan kecenderungan- kecenderungan di atas tadi. Satu film akan dipilih menjadi Film Terbaik, sedangkan predikat Sutradara Terbaik hanya bisa dimenangkan oleh sutradara yang baru membuat satu atau dua film cerita panjang. Hal ini diharapkan menjadi tradisi sehingga Jiffest ke depannya menjadi pencatat bakat-bakat baru yang bermunculan di negeri ini. Jakarta, December 2009 - www.rumahfilm.org
