ABOUT THE FILM
Boni lives in a sewage tunnel with his family, Ho is an irreverent bachelor and Titi is a woman exploited by her husband and who wants to return to school. They are inspired and inspirational street musicians, three of Jakarta’s estimated 7,000 buskers, and their compelling story is revealed with a compassionate intimacy by Canadian filmmaker Daniel Ziv. Showcasing the buskers’ humanity, the challenges of deep poverty and the resourcefulness required to survive while at the same time revealing the wider social context of their lives, Jalanan (Streetwise) has been a hit both in and outside of Indonesia.
