Children of Srikandi Collective

2012 | Indonesia, Germany, Switzerland    

The first film created by and about queer women in Indonesia, Children of Srikandi ties together eight authentic and poetic stories from different directors. Deeply personal and diverse in outlook and form, these contemporary stories are interwoven with beautiful shadow theater scenes that tell the story of Srikandi, a mythological character of the Mahabharata who is neither man nor woman, moving fluidly between both genders. Srikandi’s tale is frequently used in the traditional Javanese shadow puppet theatre plays; here it anchors a collective anthology that transcends the borders between documentary, fiction and experimental film.
