Jalanan tells the captivating story of Boni, Ho and Titi, three gifted charismatic street musicians in Jakarta over a tumultuous 5-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 has worked in Jakarta as a writer, photogra- pher & magazine editor for over a decade. He founded the monthly Djakarta! City Life Magazine & authored the urban pop culture book Jakarta Inside Out. He holds an MA in Asian Studies & is fluent in Indonesian. Jalanan is his first feature-length film.
