Synopsis

 

In the rhythm of a slow visual journey The Land Beneath the Fog takes an intimate look at family relations in Genikan - a mountain village on the Merbabu slope (Central Java). A quiet community is facing change without understanding why it happens. As a community of farmers who relies on the traditional Javanese calendar system to read the seasons, they become puzzled by the dramatic change seasons. 

 

Describing a life on the brink of vanishing, this documentary offers deep insights into ’an invisible and disenfranchised society’ which is struggling hard to maintain its existence.

Synopsis

 

A Boarding School offers rare access inside an Islamic boarding school, and an insight into a traditional educational system that fosters good character-building based on a peaceful religious teaching that has been practiced in Indonesia for centuries. Raising their students to respect and to have compassion towards others despite their differences, these schools are Indonesia’s last defense in the face of today’s rising extremism.
