Film: In the Name of Belief
January 20 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
“Indonesian Pluralities” is a film documentary series that explores the social richness and political challenge of religious, ethnic, and gender diversity in Indonesia today. Funded by the Henry Luce Foundation (New York) and created and produced by Robert Hefner and Zainal Abidin Bagir in conjunction with the celebrated Indonesian documentary film group, Watchdoc, the first three films have been widely viewed and praised in Indonesia.
This screening will showcase the first installment in the series, “In the Name of Belief”, an emotionally moving film about the struggle of the adherents of indigenous religions in Indonesia for social and legal recognition in the face of widespread discrimination. After the screening, a discussion will be moderated by Lorraine Aragon, Research Affiliate in Anthropology.
