Jalanan 

Daniel Ziv

2013 | 108 minutes | Indonesia

US Premiere | Director in Attendance

Part music documentary and part examination of the frenetically paced megacity of Jakarta, Jalanan tells the captivating story of Boni, Ho, and Titi, three gifted, charismatic street musicians over a tumultuous five year period in their lives. The film deftly uses their experiences as a lens on Indonesia’s teeming capital, conjuring up a striking, moody, and intimate portrait of a place caught in the grip of globalization. Using the powerful soundtrack of the musicians' original compositions to drive the film, director Daniel Ziv traces their elusive quest for identity and love in the day-to-day of a city overrun by the effects of economic expansion and corruption.

Director in Attendance

In a New York City subway station, a dazzlingly dressed all-female mariachi band brings the platform to life. It’s a four-minute slice of life that captures the women’s bravery as they challenge the gender norms of their favorite music. With their spin, the jovial machismo associated with the folk tradition is re-imagined as brassy and embracing merry-making.
