Summary

  • In May 1998, the student movement in Indonesia, a popular movement denouncing the end of President Suharto's authoritarian regime, accomplished the impossible: they forced Suharto to step down after more than 30 years of brutal rule. To mark the 15th anniversary of the 1998 student movement and the beginning of the Reformasi era that followed the fall of Suharto, Indonesian independent filmmaker Tino Saroengallo interviews former leaders of the student movement to ask the controversial question: did the movement fail to bring democratic change in Indonesia?
