Ismail Basbeth, Indonesia, 2015, not rated, 80 mins
Asa is the daughter of a seer. To escape her mother’s clutches, she lives hidden in a forest with her lover Laras. One day, she is collected by a dog, who turns out to be a man sent by her mother.
Moving between reality, fantasy, absurdism and symbolic representation, director Basbeth has crafted a strangely alluring sensual fairy-tale in which quotidian objects and places take on magical qualities. No words need be spoken here.
