Heaven In Exile: Tibet Exhibition And Filmfest Opens In Jakarta

March 4, 2009
March 2, 2009
Tibet photographic exhibition and film festival opens in the Indonesian capital this Friday March 6, running until March 21.

"Heaven in Exile" features photographs by Enrico Soekarno, Jay Subyakto, Krish Suharnoko and Yori Antar.

The accompanying festival features eight documentary films which will be screened during the exhibition.

The festival is a cooperative effort of the Yayasan Atap Dunia (Roof of the World Foundation) and Galeri Foto Jurnalistik Antara (you can figure that one out), and organised by my good friend (and Tibet's good friend) Enrico Soekarno.

The two venues are located together in the lively Pasar Baru district of Jakarta, so exhibition-goers can view the artists' works, take in a film, and enjoy a bit of Jakarta night-life afterwards.
