Jakarta punk documentary project

This March, Indonesian punk fans and filmmakers Maria, Ayumi & Niall started a Kickstarter project to document the threatened Indonesian punk scene under the name of Jakarta Punk: The Marjinal Story.

Go here to help the kids out. There are only few days left to take part in this amazing project supporting the right cause.

One of the directors, Niall Macaulay, gave an update on the project:

We have been on the streets of Jakarta working on our film Jakarta’s Punk: The Marjinal Story, and what an interesting time it has been. Marjinal, our featured band, had been on TV recently talking about the arrests of punks in Indonesia. We found ourselves in the government offices talking to the head of youth services, in a surprisingly vibrant and friendly conference.

Our fundraising is entering its final week, so if anyone wants to support our film about Jakarta punks, please head over to our Kickstarter. We are accepting donations from as little as a dollar, and offering great rewards that we buy at a premium price and are handmade by the Jakarta Punks themselves.
It should be noted that it was a different (and legally distinct) Indonesia region – Aceh – that suffered from the government attempts to reeducate punks.
