Supermen of Malegaon
Faiza Ahmad Khan, India 2008, 52 min

Superman of Malegaon
tells the story of cinema enthusiasts who escape the harsh reality of communal tension. Malegaon, a small town tucked away near the heart of India geographically, is fraught with communal tension and under severe economic depression. To escape the harsh reality of their world, its people seek refuge in the fantastical world of cinema. This passion for cinema has spurred a group of cinema enthusiasts to make their own films-quirky, low budget, socially aware and notoriously funny spoofs of Bollywood films. The film is a tribute to that spirit, the spirit that enables the Supermen of Malegaon to make Malegaon's Superman.

Belkibolang Indonesia 2010 | AgungSentausa, IfaIsfansyah, TumpalTampubolon, Rico Marpaung,
AnggunPriambodo, AzharLubis, Wisnu Surya Pratama, Edwin, SidiSaleh | 87 min

In Belkibolang, an acronym of ‘Belokkiribolehlangsung’ (‘Turning left through red permitted’), nine young promising Indonesian filmmakers tell urban stories from Jakarta by night and take a profound look at their rapidly changing society. This diverse, poetic and also ironic mosaic is held together by a consistent script written by Titien Wattimena.The story starts with a little girl with an umbrella and a man who together search the streets in the rain, and ends as day breaks with a taxi driver who tries in vain to inform his wife he wants to divorce.

Madame X

Indonesia 2010| Lucky Kuswandi | 100 min

This movie has cult potential. Sit down to enjoy the zero-to-hero transformation o
f Adam aka Madame X. Move along the rhythms of the Lenggok dance, which turns cross-dressing hairstylist Adam into a skilled martial arts heroine. Jump up to stand side by side with Madame X and her blow dryer, glitter, high heels and tight leather suits to support the fight for justice, freedom of expression and diversity. MADAME X lets us have it all at once: the action-loaded superhero movie, the never-ending-laughter trashiness of queer comedy and the social consciousness of political film.
