  • 2. SEPTEMBER 2016 PERSPECTIVE It Takes a Village “It takes a village to raise a child.” —African Proverb When we think about the word "children", in general we associated the word with cuteness, happiness, innocence... things that are related to joyful childhood. The reality is, children and childhood are not always rainbows and unicorns. As children, we were not without pain, sadness and weariness; pressures, demands and challenges. In short, problems. How did we, the adults of today, deal with those problems? Who and what has guided us through those problems? What kind of adults are have we become, after surviving those problems? This program invites the audience to ponder on these thoughts. "It Takes a Village" presents a series of film that talks about children and their problems. Problems that might seems simple, yet unusual. In Please Vote for Me, we see children of 8-9 years old experiencing politics. For the first time, the students get to choose first own class monitor. We see what kind of motivation, pressure and method the canditates use in their campaign. How those factors influence their decisions and the consequences, the expected and the unexpected. In Gayby Baby, we have the opportunity to hear from the children who are raised by same-sex parents. How their parents' sexual preferences raised different opinions in the society and how those opinions effected their childhood. In Indonesia, most LGBTs are still struggling to get (positive) ackonowledgement from the society. Even where are very few who are fighting for the rights to legally parent a child, Gayby Baby is an important film, exactly because it presents the point of view of the children. The director of Jihad Selfie met Akbar, the subject of this documentary, by chance, when he was getting a meal in Turkey. This meeting lead the filmmaker to follow the story on how teenagers are being recruited by extremists through social media. What is so attractive from these offers given by the extremists to the teenagers like Akbar? This film, in a way, has provided a platform for the teenager to share his aspirations, the ones which lured them to consider joining an extremist group. Unlike the other films in this program, Jermal is a fiction film. The filmmakers chose to shot the film in a realistic-documentary style, because they were inspired by the reality of a group of child who works off-shore in North Sumatera. They come from poor families and do not have convenient access to education. Working is their way of life and violence is often a necessity for survival. The story combines that harsh reality with a father-and-son drama which general audience can relate to.
  • 3. Lee Hirsch, the director of Bully, was bullied as a child. That was part of the motivation for the film, and for the direction he took it. Being bullied is the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the US, yet many supposedly-responsible adults chose to ignore this destructive habit and underestimated the impact of bullying. The film features how bullying has effected 5 kids and their families; it also captures a growing movement to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities and in society as a whole. The film screenings take places in kineforum on 7-30 September 2016. There is also a discussion on 11 September 2016 with Lestia Primayanti, the headmaster of Sekolah Kembang, a school which aimed to introduce the joy of learning to their young students; and Harini Tunjungsari, a psychologist and a lecturer in the Faculty of Psychology in Atma Jaya University. This program invites the audience to reflect on how children have their own point of view to deal with the bittersweetness of life. And how the adults can guide these children to draw a proper assessment and address the problems in their life, without loosing their hope and joy. At the end of the day, it really does take the whole village to raise a child.
