About the program
An interesting project that involves the participation of the Kampung Halaman Foundation from 12 February to 10 March 2018. Dian Herdiany, Nur Wulandari and Rachma Safitri from Kampung Halaman joined the workshop along together with Afia Pina, participant from Bangladesh. The project hosted by Griffith University, specifically Griffith Film School, Griffith International Business Development Unit and Griffith’s Interfaith & Cultural Dialogue Centre, was facilitated by Kinetic Collective and funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

Facilitated in Australia, the program aimed to build the skills and capacity of women working in the film and media industry in Bangladesh and Indonesia and provide a platform to discuss and develop strategies for addressing gender equality in the media at a local, national and international level. The project provided training for filmmakers from predominantly Muslim countries in technical film skills, online media, facilitation and community dialogue, networking and stakeholder engagement to capture discussion on changing identities.

Four participants are mentored by Jan Cattoni and Samina Ali to develop their own stories based on research and personal experience. Four short films as project output were released at an event in Brisbane on International Women’s Day 2018.

Kampung Halaman hope that the stories can be used to start conversations about other girls/ women’s personal experiences, ignite the courage them to speak up, think critically and create a valuable dialogue with a diverse audience.

This is the love story of a lady and her dog. She has a different way of being Muslim: not wearing hijab and loving and keeping a dog as her companion. Their relationship is believed by some others from the Muslim community in Indonesia to be haram or forbidden, because dogs are thought to be a representation of demons. This is a story of companionship between human and animal that is beyond the restriction of religion.

This film is about a young woman – 26-year-old Wulan, the film’s director – who grew up with two mothers, both of whom offered different perspectives about how to be Muslim. Each of the three women follow Islam but they all have their own interpretations about many aspects of the religion, like whether or not to wear Hijab. The film posits a question for its director and audience: “There are so many ways to be Muslimah – what have you chosen for yourself?”
