3 DAYS TO FOREVER (2006) [feature]

Indonesia (MIFF 2008 , Neighbourhood Watch)
Director: Riri Riza

"Holds up Indonesia like a jewel to the light, examining it for its beauty and flaws, and its mostly non-judgemental eye recalls the less paranoid moments of Easy Rider and its snapshots of 60s America." - Variety

Yusuf is a young middle-class Muslim entrusted with the all-important in task of delivering an antique cutlery set to a rural wedding, but a one-day trip turns into a three-day odyssey as the bride's hung-over sister comes along for the ride. Breaking all the taboos of Muslim, culture the teenagers embark on a journey of hedonism and drugs where no topic is off the table.
A window into the rich tapestry of modern-day Indonesia, the latest feature from Riri Riza (Eliana, Eliana, MIFF 03) is an unlikely coming-of-age road movie backed by a pumping reggae soundtrack.
