[OPIRG-EVENTS] Indonesia Film Night - July 24
Film Screening: "Eye of the Day"
On July 24th, there will be a screening of the film "Eye of the Day"
by Dutch director Leonard Retel Helmrich. Helmrich was jailed then
deported by the Indonesian government in 1995 for filming a political
demonstration. When he was allowed to return in 1997 he filmed "Eye
of the Day", which examines the tensions of modern Indonesian life
focusing on one family during the period of uncertainty after the
fall of the Suharto regime. This film was shown at the Human Rights
Watch International Film Festival.
The event is being held to support a local woman, who will be
volunteering with a peace team in Aceh, Indonesia with Peace Brigades
International. The evening will include a short talk on the crisis in
Aceh, and a reception after the film. It will take place from 7:00 pm
to 10:00 pm at Club SAW, located at 67 Nicholas St. (in Arts Court).
Admission is free.
