Sanubari Jakarta is a compilation of 10 (ten) short film, 10 (ten) LGBT themed stories (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) by 10 (ten) directors. Each 10-minute film.
In Indonesia's diverse society, a view of the differences in sexual orientation and / or gender identity is still very taboo and often aprolonged controversy. That's because in general the relationshipis considered to be normal relations between men and women.
While there are pros and contras in the community, but the LGBT still exists and has the right to live in the midst of society. They grow just like other human beings, they were born and raised in a family like everyone else. Therefore they deserve to live, obtain education, away from fear, obtain fair treatment and equal laws, get a job without discrimination.
See and respond to problems that arise recently in Indonesia such as the killing of transvestites in Taman Lawang ~ one of cruising place in Jakarta, transgender and transsexual marriage (for example the case of Jane-Alter and Umar-Ika), the increasing number of problems such as harassment, and other forms of discrimination affecting the LGBT in Indonesia. Including their efforts to fight for the legalization of same-sex marriage.
By making the 10 (ten) LGBT-themed film, we do not intend to seek the right or wrong, pro or contra, but just look at aspects of humanity. We just wanted to show that there are LGBT, live and work in our midst, just as we human beings who created the Creator. We just want to see the removal of all forms of violence and discrimination against LGBT and still continues today.
