The (Un)Making of the Betrayal

The (Un)Making of the Betrayal is a creative documentary that tells the stories of every day people whose lives were scarred by "The Betrayal", the propaganda film commissioned by a dictator. These survivors, led by main character Lestari, will come together on a road trip to tell their stories and in so doing “un-make” ‘"The Betrayal" and exorcise the past. By unraveling memories of violence in an Indonesian history and the complicity of film in shaping a nation’s consciousness, this documentary will add to contemporary dialogues on the intolerance of difference in our global community.
