“Usually, politically and socially admirable films fall short of the mark in the aesthetics department. They are praised more for their good intentions… Marlon Riggs has created that rarest of birds— a brilliant, innovative work of art that delivers a knock-out political punch.” — Vito Russo, The Advocate


A man is the sole survivor of a destructive tsunami. He carries an egg that he’s trying to find a way to hatch. With his new piece The Planet – A Lament, the Indonesian director Garin Nugroho (previously at the festival with Setan Jawa, 2017) tells an affecting story about creation, based on a Papuan myth, against the background of a natural disaster. For this project, which features a 15-voice choir, dancers and film, Nugroho has teamed up with a cast from Indonesian Papua and Nusa Tenggara Timur, and an artistic team from across the Indonesian archipelago and Australia. The Planet – A Lament is a healing ritual that mourns a lost world while also offering hope for those left behind.
