JALANAN (“Streetside”) tells the captivating story of three gifted, charismatic street musicians in Jakarta over a tumultuous five-year period in their own lives and that of Indonesia. The film follows the young marginalized musicians and their never before seen sub-culture, while also painting a striking, moody and intimate portrait of Indonesia’s frenzied capital city. Using the powerful soundtrack of the musicians’ original compositions to drive the film, it traces their elusive quest for identity and love in the day-to-day of a city overrun by the effects of globalization and corruption.

Daniel Ziv is a documentary filmmaker, author and political commentator based in Bali, Indonesia. A native of Canada, Daniel moved to Jakarta in 1999 and spent a decade documenting urban life in Indonesia’s bustling capital city as a writer, magazine editor and filmmaker. His debut feature-length documentary, JALANAN, is a gritty, intimate portrait of Indonesia seen through the eyes of three Jakarta street musicians.
