At last, we have come to the final day of FFD 2019, and we are very grateful for all the pleasant experiences during the last six days. Academics, students, journalists, artists, philanthropists, and more have visited Taman Budaya Yogyakarta and other screening locations to enjoy this year’s FFD. Thank you for your participation in FFD 2019.
But it’s not over just yet! We still have several agendas to keep you entertained a little longer.
Like the previous days, you can still enjoy the exhibition from The Feelings of Reality and SchoolDoc at the Lobby of Societet Taman Budaya Yogyakarta also another exhibition from Sensory Ethnography: Eye Witness at Kedai Kebun Forum.
There will also be Falsos Positivos (2009) screening at Societet Taman Budaya Yogyakarta. This film is part of Screening Violence program and tells about the violence by the authorities against civilians that happened in Colombia back in 2008.
In addition, Le Film de Bazin (2017) will also be screened at Auditorium IFI-LIP Yogyakarta. Directed by Pierre Hébert, the film tries to continue the unfinished work by André Bazin, French notable filmmaker who died of leukemia.
After the screening of Falsos Positivos (2009) at Societet Taman Budaya Yogyakarta, the film Village of Swimming Cows (2018) will be screened. This film attempts to capture how Berlin hipsters intersect with real farmers and shows the contrasting lifestyle, adaptation efforts, and perspective towards life from the experience.
