JAKARTA: Model Nadine Chandrawinata co-produced a film on the people of Bajo, an ethnic tribe living in Wakatobi Island, Southeast Sulawesi.
The former Putri Indonesia co-produced the film The Mirror Never Lies, currently showing in Jakarta, with Kamila Andini, the daughter of famous filmmaker Garin Nugroho.
Nadine, who is an avid diver, said she wanted to do creative work related to the sea.
“This is the first time I am a co-producer. The film is based on the lives of these people in Wakatobi. I’m very optimistic [about environmental conservation there] as I’ve observed that 90 percent of the under water beauty [there] is still intact. The culture is very strong too,” she said as quoted by kapanlagi.com.
The film, starring Atiqah Hasiholan, Reza Rahardian and three Bajo children Gita Novalista, Eko dan Zainal, received an honorable mention at the Global Film Initiative last month. — JP
