SELAMAT TINGGAL SEKOLAHKU (Farewell My School)
Ucu Agustin/ Indonesia/ Dokumenter/ 2013/ 13:00
Lintang is 11, and for seven years now he has been attending a school in Jakarta for children with a visual handicap. Everyone at school knows Lintang is the best drummer there, but their music lessons come to an end when Lintang’s parents decide he should go to a regular school. After all, he is a very independent 11-year-old who can cook, do laundry and shop for groceries all by himself. As the day of departure approaches, the boys are more concerned about the approaching separation than about their inability to see. They practice together for Lintang’s spectacular farewell performance.
SEJAUH KUMELANGKAH (How Far I’ll Go)
Ucu Agustin / Indonesia, USA / Dokumenter / 2019 / 34.26
Two childhood friends who are now teenagers, Andrea and Salsabila, live with their blindness in two different places — America and Indonesia. Both of them share the same hope for the future: they want to be independent, so they can prepare themselves better for life that is often unfriendly to blind people.
