Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi watched the film Lima (Five) in Jakarta on Wednesday.

“This is a film that could be meaningful for the public nearing the Asian Games. It can also be applied in the national training camp [Pelatnas],” he told 

The film deals with diversity in Indonesia, including inter-religious harmony. Certain scenes resonate in Indonesian sport, such as when a coach has to select athletes he deems suitable for the training camp and faces a club owner who demands that only “native” Indonesian athletes be picked.

“The film shows that the coach is able to pick based on skills. Sports enthusiasts need to see this,” he added.

During the film, the minister was accompanied by director/producer Lola Amaria, as well as athletes who acted in the film.

“We would like to encourage Indonesians to inculcate Pancasila in our daily lives, not just recite it,” said Lola as reported by
