SEATS LIMITED – PLS RSVP!
TEMAN GAMBAR invites you to attend the first Canberra screening of the short film:
“JAGA BUMIMU JAGA SELALU”
(“PROTECT YOUR EARTH, PROTECT IT ALWAYS”)
This 30 minute film describes some of the environmental situation in Indonesia, and the environment in Yogyakarta, including stories from children at the SALAM school about problems in the environment near their school, through documentation of their adventures and investigations. SALAM stands for Sanggar Anak Alam, or Children’s Nature School, and is an alternative school which teaches through engagement with its own natural environment and its local farming community. The film is presented in two languages, narrated by SALAM children and translated into English.
Through the film SALAM’s children want to encourage children around the world to work together to save the earth. But the film also acts as pressure on adults (especially governments) to improve environmental conservation in Indonesia. The project also involves the publication of a calendar illustrated with drawings and environmental messages from SALAM children and children from Leongatha Primary School in Victoria.
Two of SALAM’s inpiring educators, Mrs.Westiani Agustin (Mbak Ani) and Ms. Kurniawati Ida Purnomo (Mbak Dida) will be attending the screening, which will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.
Time: 4.30pm – 5.30pm, 18th March
Place: Theatrette, Sir Roland Wilson Building (building 120), ANU
