Step by Step: 38 Years of Garin Nugroho’s Filmmaking

As one of Indonesia’s most prolific directors, Garin Nugroho has spent the past 38 years crafting cinematic excellence that runs the gamut from poetic to romantic to political.


Goethe-Institut Indonesien is delighted to present Setapak Demi Setapak: 38 Tahun Garin Nugroho Berkarya (Step by Step: 38 Years of Garin Nugroho’s Filmmaking), which will screen 2016’s Nyai and 2019’s Kucumbu Tubuh Indahku. These two films are chosen for Goethe-Institut Indonesien’s Arthouse Cinema: Extra program due to their correlation with the current realities of Indonesia.


A dialogue between Garin Nugroho and award-winning scriptwriter Ifan Ismail will follow to discuss the two films as well as reflect on how socio-cultural, political, and economic conditions have informed the former’s filmmaking journey for the past 38 years.
