Project 11 proudly announces that we will screen a documentary movie “Jaranan” as part of the Mapping Melbourne 2017.
Jaranan: the name given to a tradition of Javanese horse dance that has the power to entrance its participants and enable their bodies to become vehicles for the spirits of the dead.
Jaranan is set in contemporary East Java where the hype of social media and pop culture reign in equal measure with the ghosts of the past.
The story is shown through the eyes of Pak Agus, a shaman and student of Java’s mystical arts. Follow the character’s journey from the darkness of the criminal underworld to his destiny as a community healer, spiritual guide and artist.
Presented by artists Silvia Indriyani, Brahmantyo Putra and Marcus Salvagno, Jaranan is a true fusion of spiritual tradition and modern innovation.
Jaranan screening will be held on:
DATE: Saturday, 2nd December 2017
TIME: 8.00PM – 10.00PM
