Banyak Ayam Banyak Rejeki

Synopsis

Banyak Ayam Banyak Rejeki began as an ill-fated promotional video for Yogyakarta street food icon and polygamist Arjun. During filming, co-director Önar Önarsson, a Swedish graduate student researching local sex rituals, was hit on the head by a large durian. He woke up convinced he was a mixed of Javanese-Arab, accounting for his light skin. To the consternation of co-director Riboet Akbar, Önarsson became erratic, insisting on dramatizing the struggles of Arjun’s wives in a public forum, the “Polygamy Awards.” Arjun was bankrupted, and the project was abandoned for 11 years, until his mysterious second wife took over control.
