1976, 52 Minutes
Nationalism, with its sense of unity, is something third world nations and those that have lived under colonialism don’t take for granted. For many it is still an ambition.
Made in 1976, this film examines the basic philosophies of President Soekarno and the nationalistic principals that no one had as yet succeeded in transforming into practical reality in Indonesia.
