To close the year, Kineforum will be holding a week of film under the theme “generasi keterusan” or the generation that over step the boundary. The theme refers to the tension between the older generations in any period of time that likes to complain about the behaviour of the younger generations that never meets their expectation. The series of films tha will be screened under “generasi keterusan” will remind everyone of the importance of the transitions between generations. Especially how the younger generation can step over their boundary by ignoring and rebelling the older generation while the older generation can over step their boundary by holding on too much to their control over the young. “Generasi Keterusan” will take place at Kineforum in Jakarta from 7 to 16 December 2018.
