Memories of my body
Indonesian film artist, Garin Nugroho’s new film, set on the exotic island of Java is bustling with love, sensuality, dance and violence. Juno was just a kid when his father abandoned him. Left on his own, he joins a traditional dance school where men not only take up dancing but also style their own feminine appearance and learn how to adopt sensual, feminine moves. The bubble in which Juno is raised clashes with Indonesia’s violent, social and political environment.
