Description

Join the Indonesian Corner at SAIS to watch Mencari Hilal (Finding the Crescent Moon) !

This movie explores the meaning of freedom, identity, political power on social structure and personal life in Indonesia. A journey of father and son, Mahmud, an Islamic conservative, and Heli, a young liberal, are pushed to travel together in search of hilal, the very first new crescent moon, which also defines their new opportunity to have a better relationship.

Director's Statement, "....Through this film I want to show it to the audience around the world, what is happening in the world of Islam in Indonesia. So that we can see together the true faces of Islam is not terror, but the beauty of understanding, love and acceptance. The key for us to arrive there is through dialogs and tolerance, and this film is my personal voice and view for that."


Indonesian food will be provided for dinner. You are encouraged to invite your friends, including non-SAIS students!
