TVRI to screen “Kita versus Korupsi” tonight
Nation-wide broadcaster Television of Republic Indonesia (TVRI) is scheduled to screen the antigraft film Kita versus Korupsi (Us versus Corruption), on Wednesday, August 22 at 8 p.m.
“The movie is dedicated to the anticorruption movement in this country, therefore we decided to screen it on TVRI due to its geographical scope with the hope that people who live in remote areas can also watch the movie,” Abduh Aziz, Kita Versus Korupsi’s producer told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
According to Abduh, they are also planning to screen the movie on Metro TV and local television stations, but negotiations are still underway.
“One thing for sure, the movie will not be played for commercial purposes. However, any television station is welcome to screen this movie,” said Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesman Johan Budi.
He added that the movie aimed to deliver anticorruption messages in an interesting way and had been screened in a number of schools and seminars.
The movie comprises four short films, including Rumah Perkara (The Troubled House) by Emil Heradi, Selamat Siang Risa! (Good Day Risa!) by Ine Febriyanti, Aku Padamu (I to You) by Lasja F Susatyo and Psssttt…Jangan Bilang Siapa-Siapa (Shh, Don’t Tell Anyone) by Chairun Nissa.
Premiered on January 26, the film was a joint production of the Transparency International Indonesia (TII), the KPK, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Management Systems International and Cangkir Kopi. (nad)
