      Grit, Ithaca Premiere w/ filmmaker Cynthia Wade

      2018 > USA > Directed by Cynthia Wade & Sasha Friedlander
      A lyrical film that explores the ongoing ramifications of a mudflow disaster, caused by natural gas drilling, that wiped out 16 villages in East Java, Indonesia in 2006. Dian was 6 years old at the time and has grown into a politically active teenager fighting against the multinational company, Lapindo, whose actions caused the disaster. Her mother has reinvented herself as an unofficial mudflow tour guide who spends her days showing curious Indonesians the lunar-like wasteland where tourists snap photos of the boiling muck and thick steam that continue to spurt violently into the sky. Cosponsored with the Southeast Asia Program, the Society for the Humanities and Performing & Media Arts. Subtitled. More at gritdocumentary.com
