ABOUT THE FILM

Position Among The Stars

For 12 years, film maker Leonard Retel Helmrich followed an Indonesian family from the slums of Jakarta in the process creating the films Eye Of The Day and Shape Of The Moon (2005 Grand Jury Prize, Sundance & 2004 Joris Ivens Award, IDFA respectivley).

With Position Among The Stars, the maker continues to show us the underlying patterns of life in Indonesia, both literally and metaphorically with his revolutionary camera work. The Sjamsuddin family is the microcosm of the most important issues of life in Indonesia: corruption, conflict between religions, gambling addiction, the generation gap and the growing difference between poor and rich.
