In September 2018, our film, “Under the Stars” participated in Docs By The Sea — International Documentary Forum Indonesia. The film was developed in May 2018 as part of the short film story development lab “If/Then”– Tribeca Film Institute.
In Docs By the Sea, “Under the Stars” was awarded the IDFA Award by the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, as “Most Promising Project”. The prize is participation of the project’s Director and Writer to the IDFAcademy to be held during IDFA in November 2018.
The film is an attempt to pause. An impossible pause in the life of Reyboy as he spends the last two weeks of summer in his hometown, before he leaves for the city to attend high school.
