    • Project

      The project is to making a short film about sexual abuse that happened to fragile and financially struggling young boys in a Hindu ashram in Bali of Indonesia. Loosely based on scandalous rumors that are still shocking the island alleged an accusation of a huge cover up by conspiracy among a few powerful people in Bali. The film will tell the story of a loyal assistant named Aditya who is torn between his charismatic guru and a new innocent recruitee in a Hindu ashram in Bali. It will expose how Aditya, as asexual abuse victim of his Guru can become the perpetrator himself and depicts how manipulative is the relationship between the spiritual leader and the students. Objectives:The main objective of the film is to give a voice to the victims of the actual events who were repressed by threats and peer pressure, thus the victims were traumatized and chose to keep silent where they should be protected and supported to heal their trauma instead. The justification and the hidden truth made the abuser nourish a system where it let the society and the victim to adapt this behavior where subconsciously they implemented the act to the potential future victim. The film will be made in order to be a campaign tool to educate the people, that sexual abuse has so many layers and spectrum and can happen not only to women, but also to men, especially to the vulnerable boys. The film also depicts how LGBTQ community acceptance is still a serious matter in Indonesia, often condemned in the name of religion but ironically often happens in religious institutions. Sometimes religion can make someone blurry and become an extremist where they tend to skip many other sides in life, especially the value of humanity. By making this film, we want to be the whistle blower especially to the local society in Bali that sexual abuse can thrive under the name of God’s institution. We need to raise awareness and to open a dialogue to answer “can we help foster future conversation about sexual abuse, mental health and faith?”
