The Festival continues – meet the Festival guests!

18 November 2021

On the first Thursday of the festival, we are focusing on Indonesia. Muranów cinema will be hosting the only screening of Paweł Ferdek’s "Agung" and a Q&A with the filmmakers. This unique Polish production, shot in Indonesia, uses elements of local traditions and religion to tell a story bordering on a thriller and psychological cinema.

The guest of our studio is Edwin, the author of a surprising, dynamic film "Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash," showing Indonesia from a completely new perspective. We talk to the director about the 1980s, and the inspirations with Indonesian, Hong Kong, and American pop culture of the time.

Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash

Ajo Kawir is a known bully who doesn't take crap from anyone. And yet, everyone knows that there is one battlefield he always fails at – the bedroom. One of his shady dealings leads him to Iteung, a girl who will kick his ass and blow him away for good. This rock'n'roll, comic book-style plot dazzles with the dynamic action, leading the viewer straight into the retro nostalgia for the 80s and a bitter-sweet story about love, sacrifice, and masculinity in crisis.

Edwin

Film director, producer, and screenwriter. Born in Surabaya, Indonesia, in 1978, he studied film in Jakarta Institute of Arts. His short film "Kara, the Daughter of a Tree" premiered in the Director’s Fortnight section at Cannes Film Festival in 2005, and his first feature, "Blind Pig Who Wants to Fly" (2008) received a FIPRESCI Award at International Film Festival Rotterdam. His second feature, "Postcards from the Zoo," was in competition at the Berlinale. He made a number of films appreciated by local audiences and international film festival viewers. In 2021, Edwin received a Golden Leopard in Locarno for "Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash."

Meetings in cinemas

On Thursday, November 18, at 8:30 p.m., we invite you to Muranów cinema for the screening of "Agung" and a Q&A with Paweł Ferdek who will talk about the making of his unique project.

The other Festival guest is Maung Sun, the Burmese director presenting his film "Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash," who will talk about the new generation of filmmakers in Burma that spread their wings in the past two decades of the slow democratization of the country.
