Film screening: Chinese Whispers by Rani P Collaborations
“We cannot heal what we will not face”
On May 21, 1998, President Suharto of Indonesia resigned after 32 years in power. The events leading up to that day are complicated. There was an economic crisis. There was a student movement. There was a contested election. And there were riots, killings, and mass rapes of Chinese Indonesian women. To this day, nobody has been held accountable. A whole generation has grown up in ignorance of these events. Chinese Whispers seeks to challenge that ignorance.
Screening and discussion with the lead artist, Rani Pramesti, facilitated by National Organization of Asians and Pacific Islanders Ending Sexual Violence (NAPIESV).
