Hi!

My name is Julia Friedman, and I work with Rooftop Films, a NYC nonprofit organization and summer film festival.(www.rooftopfilms.com) On Friday, July 17th, Rooftop Films will be screening an Indonesian documentary, Blind Pig Who Wants to Fly. Below is more information about the film and the Rooftop Films screening:

The debut feature from Indonesian director Edwin is a delightfully bizarre and original film that marks the coming of a major new international talent. Edwin (who uses only his first name) has crafted a movie that is filled with outrageous scenarios, but the emotions and messages are subtle—a mature balance that is surprisingly comic, sweet without being sentimental, and passionately disquieting without reverting to shock or melodrama.

The overarching metaphor for the film is, of course, the blind pig who wants not to see, but to fly—not the usual, but the unexpected. And yet the characters in the film, for all their strange talents and desires,
with all their unusual personalities and unique perspectives, above all
they want to fit in, to be like everyone else. In particular, the film is about the Chinese minority in Indonesia, who struggle with racism and sometimes violent oppression, who long for acceptance. But in general, the film is about anybody who suppresses the joy of their natural individuality for the banal sorrow of conformity, and the bitter fact that many people must make this sacrifice in order to survive.
