(p.165) 6 Producing an Oligopoly
Indonesian Cinema after the New Order

Thomas Barker

Hong Kong University Press

Even with the entry of new filmmakers, production companies, and investors, the Indonesian film industry remains dominated by an oligopoly of old producers. In identifying this group, this chapter traces their connections back to the 1960s and their consolidation throughout the New Order. With significant presence in television production, these producers are both now wealthy and well-connected, allowing them to reassert themselves in the reformed post-1998 film industry. Largescale capital has been important to the systemisation of film production for the mainstream market but speaks to the legacy structures of the New Order.
