Hiruk-pikuk si al-kisah

Yosep Anggi Noen, Indonesia, Malaysia, France, 2019o


Set in 1960s Indonesia, Siman is a quiet man who accidentally discovers a moon-landing shooting by a foreign crew, in a haunted and unpopulated area. Siman is caught by guards and his tongue cut off. Siman goes through life in slow-motion imitating an astronaut in outer space, and is labeled as crazy.

In the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Yosep Anggi Noen goes back to this landmark moment and reimagines it to have been staged in Indonesia. Siman is an inadvertent witness of this staging. Forced into silence, the truth weighs heavier on his shoulders each day. Our era of fake news may fool us into thinking it is a new phenomenon; in fact, the fabrication of fact has been an age-old story, and the Indonesian state a culprit.
