Yangon Calling – Punk in Myanmar (Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke, Germany / Myanmar, 2014) 61 mins

UK Premiere

From the first cassettes of British bands sneaked into this isolated country by sailors in the 1990s, Myanmar’s underground punk scene, radical and defiant, has swelled to several hundred followers. This award-winning documentary, filmed secretly in the former military dictatorship using hidden cameras, provides a rare portrait of the rebels who really do have a cause as they stand up against what was an authoritarian regime, introducing us to their homes, their friends, their families and their hidden world of rehearsal rooms and illicit concerts.

Jalanan (Daniel Ziv, Canada/Indonesia, 2014) 112 mins

UK Premiere

Literally meaning ”Streetside”, Jalanan provides a pavement-level view of Jakarta through the eyes of Boni, Ho and Titi, three charismatic buskers who ply their trade on the city’s bus network. The film paints an intimate portrait of the young musicians’ lives and quirky sub-culture unfolding against the wider, little-known backdrop of contemporary Indonesia, and a striking portrayal of the frenzied capital city that is raw, humorous and brutally honest.
