Theme: 
Short Documentary Film

This documentary-essay offers a political and aesthetic reflection, interrogating the audience about freedom and modern urbanism where "forced" migrants are driven to live in ghettoes, which the city absorbs and resents in a similar movement. Foster mother, the source of life around which men aggregate, settle and grow, water is the mainstay of daily social and intimate life. The Ciliwung River in Jakarta that borders one of the poorest and most densely populated city kampungs, turns into a public bathroom or outdoor kitchen, where people do the dishes and go to the toilet in the same place. But severe droughts, harvest rains, urban sprawl, garbage congestion upon banks due to the lack of public waste management, have contaminated water that becomes synonymous with threat. The inhabitants of Bukit Duri, faced with dire health, environmental and economic severe situations, wait patiently in silence.
