Spending valuable time at #dirumahaja by watching documentary movie of Ambon conflict at Narasi.tv
Narasi Signature Series launched the 1st documentary movie with title “Luka Beta Rasa” to commemorate 21 years of the Ambon conflict that is part of the documentary series of The Invisible Heroes that was launched early this year.
This documentary tells the story of former child combatants during the Ambon conflict (1999-2002). According to the records, at least 4,000 children were forced to become combatants and fight into battle. The story is delivered by Ronald Regang who was once one of the leaders of child war groups. For nearly 20 years after the battle, Ronald looked for his friends who also grew up with the trauma of war.
This documentary movie is a collaboration with the Center for the Study of Religion and Democracy of Paramadina. Tashoora, a band from Yogyakarta also participated in this movie by creating its OST called “Sintas”.
Along with Convid-19 pandemic and campaign #dirumahaja, Narasi hopes that “Luka Beta Rasa'' movie could engage the audience to learn the impact of the conflict which left deep trauma to all parties involved and how the survivors get passed through their trauma and carry on with their lives.
