Jermal
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Rayya Makarim, Ravi Bharwani


After his mother's death, Jaya (12) is sent to his father, Johar, who works as a supervisor on a jermal (a fishing platform perched on log stilts in the middle of the sea). Johar is shocked, never knowing he has a son, and rejects the boy as his kin. Fully aware he can't bring Jaya back to land due to a dark past, Johar is forced to accept the boy as a worker on the site.

Press

"(Jermal) might be the best Indonesian film of the year"

- Kim Dong-ho

"(Jermal) adopts a neorealist approach, plays on our emotions and conscience. ... "Jerrnal" is stirring and goes much deeper into the inner recesses of our national psyche."

- Julia Suryakusuma, the author of "Sex, Power and Nation".

"If this is the new face of the Indonesian film industry, it deserves a standing ovation."
