Indonesian Cinema after the New Order

Thomas Barker

Hong Kong University Press

New creative work began to appear in the 1990s through television culminating in the breakthrough feature film Kuldesak (1998). It became the watershed for a new generation of young Indonesians to make their own films, often through an indie philosophy. At first being indie and independent were important values, but over time and with the regularisation of production, the need for consistent capital meant more filmmakers turned to big production companies for capital. A new accommodation between creativity and capital has become the dominant mode of production in the post-1998 film industry.

Keywords:   Indie, independent filmmakers, creative expression, self-funding, new generation, capital
