Event Description

The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series will present "Position Among the Stars" (2011), part three of Leonard Retel Helmrich’s Indonesian Trilogy followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.

This is the most recent installment of Dutch-Indonesian filmmaker Helmrich’s ongoing project of documenting an Indonesian family during personal, governmental, societal and technological change. Believing that cinema is motion, Helmrich has developed a panoply of jerry-rigged technologies for capturing the motion and emotion of human experience and uses the remarkable intimacy his approach gives him to explore the daily life of a struggling family in the world’s largest Islamic republic.
