Home / Regular Screening / January 2006, SHORT FILMS SCREENING AND DISCUSSION



A few years ago, Edwin came to Minikino’s monthly short film screenings in Oktagon bringing what he regards as his first film, “A Very Slow Breakfast.” This first contact between Minikino and Edwin soon continued to other Minikino programs, in Indonesia and overseas. This time Minikino is honored to premiere his newest work, “A Very Boring Conversation”, together with an international premiere at the 35th International Film Festival Rotterdam, where this short film will compete for the Tiger Cub Awards.

As an Indonesian filmmaker who is passionate about the short film format, Edwin is involved in Indonesia’s major productions as well. In 2005, after being assistant director in “Gie” (Riri Riza/Miles Production) and “Untuk Rena” of Miles Production, he received Best Short Film Award for “Kara the Daughter of a Tree” at the Indonesian Film Festival 2005. The same film was selected to screen at Directors’ Fortnight, Cannes Film Festival 2005.

Edwin has gone a long way and this month, Minikino presents his short films to trace the road he has taken – and to follow where he will be going next.

The conversation starts from coments about music and internet emails, then slowly moved to unlogical things that could possibly change a ‘mother-son relationship’ to a ‘man-woman relationship’.
