ARKIPEL – Jakarta International Documentary & Experimental Film Festival, held in Indonesia by Forum Lenteng. This festival is an open space of cinema and media discourse in general, especially documentary and experimental film genre. 

In organizing the Festival Forum 2016, ARKIPEL social/capital – 4th Jakarta International Documentary & Experimental Film Festival invites Ruth Noack as the Keynote Speaker. She will present her paper on the opening day of the forum, entitled Once Again – Agency in Cinema.

“It is not enough to make good films. It is not enough to write about good films. It is not enough to mediate good films. Since the inception of the idea that there might be: a radical artistic practice, a critical reflexion of moving images and an emancipated spectatorship, people have formulated more than once – and forgotten more than once – how to achieve agency in these activities. Whether we are cultural producers, political activists or simply fans of cinema, we have no choice but to try anew. Again and again.” (Abstract from “Once again – Agency in Cinema” by Ruth Noack).

November 2015 Ruth Noack, May Adodol Ingawanij and students at the DAI Roaming Academy class entitled NON-TRANSMITTABLE FORM were kindly hosted by Forum Lenteng as guest researchers.
