Film screening ‘Pulau Buru Tanah Air Beta / Buru Island My Homeland’, by Ruhung Nasution.
‘Pulau Buru Tanah Air Beta’ is a movie about political prisoners that were detained in the Moluccan Island of Buru after the 1965 events. The most famous political prisoner imprisoned in Buru was the writer Pramudya Ananta Tur. In the movie the Indonesian writer Hersri Setiwan, accompanied by his daughter Ken, visits the island where he was once imprisoned. To meet old friends, to visit the graves of friends who are not among us anymore and to tell this part of the Islands history.

‘Pulau Buru Tanah Air Beta’ was released last March. Several screenings in Indonesia were canceled because of the threats of mass-organizations. Among them the first screening in the Goethe Institute in Jakarta.

KITLV organizes a special screening of ‘Pulau Buru Tanah Air Beta’ with a Q&A with Hersri’s daughter Ken Setiawan.
