May I propose our nations national documentary, The Ancient and Terrible Evil. It is a medium length documentary outlining the details of the invasion plans of the Anatis, how we can prevent invasion and how to defeat the Anatis emissaries on Earth (commonly known as ducks). This would not only make our nations citizens happy it would go a long way in making the planet a safer place for all humanity.

Yours The ever Vigilant Anitidae,
defenders of humanity from the ancient and terrible evil.

First Day

Postby Pemecutan » Sun Sep 26, 2021 10:33 pm

Monday, a typical bustling day in Ubung. As an economic center, it is an every day view to see a crowded street especially in Monday, the first day of the week. But at this day, the situation in one part of the city become more hectic than before. Merta Gangga District which located in the western part of the city, the entertainment center of the city and the center place of this year Ubung Film Festival. The city and the district have preparing themselves to welcome filmmakers from around the world.

It is still noon but the situation in front of Mandala Theater have been so crowded. Reporters from abroad and also domestic are lining up at the side of the red carpet that lead to the theater entrance. A large board with the logo of the film festival can be seen at the midway of the red carpet. Reporters are mostly flocking at this section because the guests are likely to stop there. Around 2 o'clock, some guests have arrive at the festival venue. The reporters reflect take the picture of everyone who arrived. They are waving to the reporters and also movie fans that also lining up along with the reporters. Some of the artists are approaching their fans. Greet them. Give them their signature and even take picture with them. The guests take the opportunity of the logo board to be capture by the reporters.

Komang Raka who arrive later on are being interviewed by the reporter. Foreign artists and filmmakers are also being interview. This is the second time that the festival is open to foreign submission. Previously, it is exclusive to Pemecutanian filmmakers. Hence the category of Pemecutan Grand Prix which is awarded to Pemecutanian film is still there. Unfortunately, only 2 Pemecutanian films that are entering this year. Several films have been decline to enter, such as Arya Prabangsa's Politik Bola (Football Politics) and Putu Setyawati's Biro Jodoh (Matchmaking).

It's not that we are not supporting this film festival. But it is more like giving the spotlight to the foreign films because they are the main attraction here. We gain information about the progress of cinematic industry of other countries by seeing their movies.

Besides the filmmakers that join in the film festival, we can also see other known Pemecutanian filmmakers who is likely enjoy the vibe of the festival. We also can see foreign judges of this year film festival. There are Maria Gerasimovich from Waisnor, Rusli Hadikusuma from Samudera Darussalam and Shelly Cut of Beepee who also enter the festival with her film Apple for Jam.

The hype at the entrance of Mandala Theater is decreasing as everyone has enter the building for the screening of the opening film of the festival. For this edition, the organizer select Alezian movie as the opening of the film festival. As of the last edition, foreign film have been selected as the opening film. This setting is to give the sense of inter-nationality to the film festival. All 5 screening room will presenting Amin this day as the opening film with the main screening room is fill with the judges and guests.

Directed by Nuharaini Hasyimarrina. Based off a real story told in a public meeting of the North Alezian Intelligence Forces in 2011, "Amin" tells a story of a secret agent of the Alezian Intelligence Forces named Amin Hisaqqaruddin, who's known for his bravery and valour in the team, but also for his strong sense of justice for his family. One day, he got to face a mission that might put his life in stake, but he didn't tell even his wife and two kids. But God knows how to tell a secret to someone, even the most hidden ones.
"God, Bring him home. To me. To us. Amin."

In the mission, Amin fell down from the bridge located between the Old Metropolitan Zafizamarrah and Government Way, lost in the river that separated the city. The forces thought he was dead, but actually, Amin was not dead. He woke up far away from the city, but not too far away since he can still see the skyscrapers of the Metropolis. However, he lost his memory, and forgets almost everything that he know, including his family. He started to look for answers, slowly yet surely.

After Amin was declared dead, two agents arrived at the family house to announce the "death" of Amin. Minahaminna (shortened to Mina) was devastated, and in denial started to search for her husband, even if it would resulted in her meeting the same fate, to the dissapproval of her teenager son with the name of Nazarim, who tried to talk his mother out of it, telling the mother that it's already God's decision and it cannot be overruled, but she wouldn't listen.

As his wife continued her searching and praying without any result for two weeks and Nazarim not being able to focus in school thinking that his dad won't do anything that reckless, Amin slowly relearned of his past and present and what he wanted for the future, thanks to someone putting him back in his place using a drinking glass (a small appearance by Andi Robi Idris Novogrody) in a cafe. Perceived dead, Amin tried to tell his workplace and his family that he is not yet dead. He remembered his previous house address in old city of Zafizamarrah. When he peeked through the window, he realized that his wife who still thought he was dead tried to forget him forever, emptying Amin's belongings and pictures, added with preparing a paper to separate her and her son from Amin.

Amin tried to stop Mina from doing such things, but his keys are not in his black jackets, he tried finding for a key, but he can't. Thus he has no choice but to barge into the house, and present himself in front of Mina. However, even with his appearance, Mina was still scared and called the Intelligence Force and Police to come into her house and arrest this person. Before Amin was brought into jail, Nazarim quickly interrupted and proved that this person is really Amin by showing everyone in the house of Amin's scar on his left forehead which Nazarim pointed out was unique as it was never found in any other person. Nazarim also proved Amin's identity with showing Amin's habits of moving his left hand uncontrollably when he's on a situation of panic. Everyone trusted the son and Amin was forgiven, and the family was reunited.

After that, a few years later, Amin, now not perceived dead anymore did a speech in front of the Alezian Intelligence Forces on the basis of trust and care for families who met the same fate, or worse fate as his. After that, Amin and Mina saw Nazarim still with his Senior High School Graduation Clothes on, coming to them for a great family hug.

I would love to present a consideration for the film festival, we call the movie "The Moneyman". It is about a rivalry between a ruthless entrepreneur and a disgraced police detective with a mission to regain his status with him exposing the entrepreneur. It is directed by Darrell Zokhnov, one of the country's most prestigious directors and his first movie in nearly 5 years. It would be an honor for the film to be seen in the festival!

AMIN
Theme song for the Alezian Movie "Amin"

Andi Robi Idris Novogrody
Tune: David D’or – Leha’amin
Lyric: Andi Robi Idris Novogrody
Music: Andi Robi Idris Novogrody
Note: Amin is pronounced A-meen (or just say Amen if you want to)


Na-na-na….

It’s her Amin,
It’s her Amin that bridged himself between his life and death
It’s her Amin,
It’s her Amin that promised her the entirety of the blue earth

She still prayed for her Amin,
She never stopped praying for him,
For her Amin….

It’s his Amin,
It’s his Amin that prayed for everything, for love all the way,
It’s his Amin,
It’s his Amin that won’t ever give up even if he loudly shouted “why?”

Their Amin means dream for all of them,
Living together, feeling free
It’s their Amin…

It’s their Amin!
(na-na-na)
It’s their Amin!
(na-na-na)

It’s your Amin,
What will you do when you have the very last Amin to say?
It’s your Amin,
Will you treat every Amin like it is your end, it’s very last?

Fighting for the world with what you believe,
Your prayer will have its answer,
It’s your Amin…

It’s your Amin!
(na-na-na)
It’s your Amin!
(na-na-na)

It’s your Amin!
(na-na-na)
It’s your Amin!
(na-na-na)

It’s your Amin!

Second Day

Postby Pemecutan » Tue Sep 28, 2021 11:21 pm

For the second day of the festival, 3 films have been schedule. The screening is divided into Morning session (from 9 AM - 12 AM) and Afternoon session (from 2 PM - 8 PM). This day the screening will be open by a foreign film from Beepee entitled Apple for Jam. There is a one hour meet and greet session before the screening.

Image
Directed by Shelly Cut, the film tell a story of a renowned chef that have to overcome his hard time.
Renowned but boarish, hot headed and overbearing celebrity chef, Stewart Pott's life is thrown into turmoil when one of his on-air blow-ups results in the cancellation of his TV show and the a boycott of his restaurant. Seeking time away from the spotlight, Stewart heads to the country to avoid the press, hiring a farm stay on an apple orchard.

There he meets orchard owner Honey Crisp. Stewart's over the top and abrasive personality instantly grates with quiet and mild Honey.

Honey is struggling to make ends meet with the orchard and is feeling second thoughts about her upcoming marriage to workaholic, Stakh. When Stakh leaves for the big city to close a business deal and a big storm causes a power cut and damages the farm stag cottage, Honey reluctantly let's Stewart stay in her main house, and offers him a slice of homemade apple pie. The sweet pie melts the rough exterior of Stewart and he regaled her with stories. The pair talk all night until the morning comes. Together they repair the damage from the storm and grow closer, doing chores and cooking together.

Stakh returns from the city. A blow up between Honey and Stakh sees the couple end their relationship, and Stakh leaves. However, Stewart has received a call from his business manager and also leaves to return to his life. Now, alone in the orchard, Honey busies herself making jams and chutneys and general work.

In a meeting with his business manager, Stewart realises that his brash and arrogant ways aren't what he wants and he leaves the meeting to return to Honey.

Returning to the orchard, the pair embrace and kiss, living romantically ever after.

Third Day

Postby Pemecutan » Tue Sep 28, 2021 11:57 pm

Drizzled is happening at the morning of the third day of Ubung Film Festival. Some movie fans, guests and filmmakers that following the morning session screening have to wear jacket or raincoat to avoid the drizzle. There are 4 films that is screened today. One of them is short film from Samudera Darussalam.


Image
Directed and Written by Azizah Mahesa, Biru tells a story of a man with the same name who has the curiosity for his boss and neighbor.
Biru is a worker at a local flower shop across the street from his apartment. He is shown to be a good friend with the shop's owner Reno, who lives in the same building upstairs. One day, when Biru is tending to a potted plant at the shop, an elderly lady arrives. He sees Reno greets her with a sympathetic expression, apologizes for a certain incident, and gave her a bouquet of white lily.

Biru, who recognizes the old lady as Mrs. Gemilang, his quiet next door neighbour, is interested in the exchange. After the old lady leaves, he went to Reno and stated that how it's like a ritual for the both of them, indicating that the exchange happens frequently. Reno just nodded solemnly, before quietly wondered that it's been long after "it" happened. As Biru asked what she means by "it", Reno quickly shook her head and told Biru that since he has helped her to open the shop from dawn, he is allowed to go home early. Biru protested, but Reno shooed him by telling him that she is feeling generous today.

As Biru parked his bike in his favourite park near the town's limit to spend the spare time before night comes, he sees Mrs. Gemilang walked into the nearby graveyard, bringing the bouquet of white lily that she bought from their shop. Biru, who is still curious in the earlier interaction between his boss and his neighbour, discreetly follows her until she stops in front of a carefully-maintained looking grave, and went to hide behind a nearby tree. Biru grew horrified once he overhears her talks to her son, who apparently died by suicide years ago. As the young man turned to leave now that he feels he has really overstepped the boundaries by overhearing what obviously means to be private, he accidentally stepped on a fallen branch, which creaks loudly, alerting his presence to the mourning woman nearby. Caught red-handed that he is stalking her, Biru becomes severely flustered and apologizes profusely for his deed, stating that his action is unacceptable and that he only follows her since he is always left confused at the routine between her and his boss, Reno.

The tearful old woman, who is just surprised at his presence, laughs quietly and motions for him to sit beside her in front of the grave. As Biru did so, Mrs. Gemilang smiles softly and said that his action reminds her of her late son Aris, who always has large curiosity during his lifetime. She told him that Reno is his son's former classmate. While she is never involved in the severe bullying that apparently is the reason why Aris took his own life, Reno seems to feel guilty eversince because she didn't stand up for her son, and as such, always apologizes to her for the incident whenever the old woman went to her shop to buy flowers, eventhough Mrs. Gemilang herself never blames her for what happened. After she finished recounting the story, Biru holds her right hand and said that he is sorry for the incident, and that Aris must be a wonderful son. As they smiled at each other, the camera pans up to show that the sun starts to set in the horizon.

Majid Widyatama is the one who Produced, Directed and Write the movie entitled Memilih. The movie revolves around Wijaya family who is in the brink of separation and how the son of the family, Ali deal with the situation.
Ali is a silent, sensitive young man from a middle-class family who has just graduated high school. While preparing for the upcoming college entrance examination, he mostly spends his days either by studying or hanging out with his close friend and crush from high school, Dinda. During one of their hang outs, Dinda reveals to him that she is dating a former classmate of theirs. Heartbroken, Ali cheerfully congratulates her despite feeling miserable inside.

His calm home life takes a turn when his working mother Nur suddenly accuses her husband, stay-at-home father Awang, for cheating. Nur, who has been frustated by the difficult financial situation her office is currently in and her husband's apparent disregard for the money she got by spending it on merchs, is "divinely inspired" to check on her husband's phone and found that he has been in constant communication with another woman. They begin to fight daily, until one day Nur expresses her wish for a divorce.

Ali, who still feels heartbroken after Dinda's revelation, began to isolate himself from his family, claiming that he needs to prepare for the examination. Deep down, however, Ali is still unable to believe that his caring, loving father might cheat, and can't help but think that maybe this is a misunderstanding on his mother's part, since Ali knows about the stress his mother has from her office condition as she frequently talks about it with him. With that in mind, Ali begins to think if it's better for him to investigate the matter alone in order to gain better understanding of the conflict. However, he then remembers that the examination is just a couple of weeks away and there are some materials that he needs to work on. Soon, Ali is conflicted between investigating it and focusing on his study. Deep down, Ali is also afraid that if he choose to investigate, it might involve him in the problem and as result, might worsen the situation between his mother and father.

In his confusion, Ali is thinking about asking for Dinda's opinion about the problem, hoping that since she comes from a broken home family, she would likely have better understanding from her experience and might gives him pointer about what he should do with the situation. However, he suddenly remembers that she is dating another person, thus makes him stopping short from asking her as he is afraid of disturbing his friend's budding relationship. His doubts about his mother, however, is gone once he accidentally overhears one of his parents' fights, where his father confirms that he is indeed, has a feeling for another woman, but insists that he doesn't want their marriage to be over. Overwhelmed with the revelation and the blooming feeling of betrayal in his mind, Ali watches helplessly as their parents continue to scream at each other, before finally his mother stomps out from the house to drive somewhere else. That night, when his mother still have yet to come back and isn't answering his calls, Ali decides to go out and look for her only to find his mother sitting alone in a park not far from their house, crying. Nur says that she wants to die, though Ali warns her to not do anything stupid before driving both of them home.

After that, with the situation at home keeps deteriorating and his mother often makes excuses to go home from work late, Ali begins to feel exhausted. He already doesn't get many sleep with his parents' fighting through the night, and he also begins to feel anxious about his chance of getting accepted into the university, especially since the stress begin to affect his study. The night before the examination, Nur comes to his room and asks Ali if it's okay for him to live without his father. As his stress level peaked, the memory of his mother saying that she wanted to die starts to reverberate in his mind, shaking him up. Overcame with emotion, Ali screams at his mother to leave him alone. Shocked, Nur silently leaves the room while Awang, who hears the scream comes to his son's room and scolds Ali for yelling at his mother, reminding him that Nur is having a hard time right now. Feeling extremely guilty, and still pissed at his father, Ali tunes his father out by daydreaming. Before he walks out from Ali's room, Awang stops at the doorway and apologizes to Ali for everything, saying that he will always love him no matter what happens.

The next day, Nur drives Ali to the examination place, a campus where Ali used to win a photography competition. As Nur remarks on this, Ali was reminded of their exchange the night before. Looking down, he apologizes to his mother, saying that he is not ready to deal with his mother's question the previous night and to please give him time to think about it after the examination is done. Smiling tearfully, Nur parks her car at the nearby parking lot and says that she has always forgives him, and that she is also sorry for all the time she and his father might have intrude his studying by their fighting. Ali says that it doesn't really matter before asking his mother to pray so he might pass the exam, and then walks out from the car to enter the building. As he looks for his examination room, he passed by Dinda, who is sitting alone by herself in front of her room. Dinda cheerfully asked him how he is doing, before grimaces as she gets a good look at his expression and stating with worry that he doesn't look okay. Smiling tiredly, Ali begins to have flashbacks about everything that happened to him before and sighing, saying that it has been an eventful month. Dinda then stands up from the bench and turns to stand beside him, saying that although she has a boyfriend now, she will always be available if he needs to talk about his problems, especially since for a long time of their friendship, she recognizes Ali as somebody who tends to bury their problem deep and thus needs coaxing to open themselves up to the others. Ali, who starts to get overwhelmed with emotion from hearing his friend's words, tears up before smiling at her, thanking Dinda for offering her time and promises to tell her everything after their examination is over, before he went back to walk into his room, that is located nearby. From behind his back, Dinda smiles and says that she will be waiting and for Ali to do his best.

During the exam, as Ali began to stumble upon the questions on the paper, he is reminded of everything that happened to him before, and of his parents' and Dinda's words. Ali smiles and mutters that he has survived the whole ordeal and he won't let some questions prevent him from passing the important examination in his life right now, as he has promised to do his best. Ali then writes his answers and once the time is up, stands to turn his paper in and leave, never looking back into the room.

The scene then turns to a family court. Nur and Awang has filed for a divorce, and the judge makes their separation permanent after a proceeding. The judge then asked which parent Ali chooses to live with. Ali states that he has made a decision, but asks that the judge tell his parents to wait outside before he tells him. His decision is left unresolved.

The fifth day of the festival and the screening is delay because of light rain in the morning. The screening is delay for almost an hour. The morning session is re-screening 2 films including the opening film, Amin.


Image
Directed by Nuharaini Hasyimarrina. Based off a real story told in a public meeting of the North Alezian Intelligence Forces in 2011, "Amin" tells a story of a secret agent of the Alezian Intelligence Forces named Amin Hisaqqaruddin, who's known for his bravery and valour in the team, but also for his strong sense of justice for his family. One day, he got to face a mission that might put his life in stake, but he didn't tell even his wife and two kids. But God knows how to tell a secret to someone, even the most hidden ones.
"God, Bring him home. To me. To us. Amin."

In the mission, Amin fell down from the bridge located between the Old Metropolitan Zafizamarrah and Government Way, lost in the river that separated the city. The forces thought he was dead, but actually, Amin was not dead. He woke up far away from the city, but not too far away since he can still see the skyscrapers of the Metropolis. However, he lost his memory, and forgets almost everything that he know, including his family. He started to look for answers, slowly yet surely.

After Amin was declared dead, two agents arrived at the family house to announce the "death" of Amin. Minahaminna (shortened to Mina) was devastated, and in denial started to search for her husband, even if it would resulted in her meeting the same fate, to the dissapproval of her teenager son with the name of Nazarim, who tried to talk his mother out of it, telling the mother that it's already God's decision and it cannot be overruled, but she wouldn't listen.

As his wife continued her searching and praying without any result for two weeks and Nazarim not being able to focus in school thinking that his dad won't do anything that reckless, Amin slowly relearned of his past and present and what he wanted for the future, thanks to someone putting him back in his place using a drinking glass (a small appearance by Andi Robi Idris Novogrody) in a cafe. Perceived dead, Amin tried to tell his workplace and his family that he is not yet dead. He remembered his previous house address in old city of Zafizamarrah. When he peeked through the window, he realized that his wife who still thought he was dead tried to forget him forever, emptying Amin's belongings and pictures, added with preparing a paper to separate her and her son from Amin.

Amin tried to stop Mina from doing such things, but his keys are not in his black jackets, he tried finding for a key, but he can't. Thus he has no choice but to barge into the house, and present himself in front of Mina. However, even with his appearance, Mina was still scared and called the Intelligence Force and Police to come into her house and arrest this person. Before Amin was brought into jail, Nazarim quickly interrupted and proved that this person is really Amin by showing everyone in the house of Amin's scar on his left forehead which Nazarim pointed out was unique as it was never found in any other person. Nazarim also proved Amin's identity with showing Amin's habits of moving his left hand uncontrollably when he's on a situation of panic. Everyone trusted the son and Amin was forgiven, and the family was reunited.

After that, a few years later, Amin, now not perceived dead anymore did a speech in front of the Alezian Intelligence Forces on the basis of trust and care for families who met the same fate, or worse fate as his. After that, Amin and Mina saw Nazarim still with his Senior High School Graduation Clothes on, coming to them for a great family hug.

Directed and Written by Azizah Mahesa, Penasaran tells a story of a man name Biru who has the curiosity for his boss and neighbor.
Biru is a worker at a local flower shop across the street from his apartment. He is shown to be a good friend with the shop's owner Reno, who lives in the same building upstairs. One day, when Biru is tending to a potted plant at the shop, an elderly lady arrives. He sees Reno greets her with a sympathetic expression, apologizes for a certain incident, and gave her a bouquet of white lily.

Biru, who recognizes the old lady as Mrs. Gemilang, his quiet next door neighbour, is interested in the exchange. After the old lady leaves, he went to Reno and stated that how it's like a ritual for the both of them, indicating that the exchange happens frequently. Reno just nodded solemnly, before quietly wondered that it's been long after "it" happened. As Biru asked what she means by "it", Reno quickly shook her head and told Biru that since he has helped her to open the shop from dawn, he is allowed to go home early. Biru protested, but Reno shooed him by telling him that she is feeling generous today.

As Biru parked his bike in his favourite park near the town's limit to spend the spare time before night comes, he sees Mrs. Gemilang walked into the nearby graveyard, bringing the bouquet of white lily that she bought from their shop. Biru, who is still curious in the earlier interaction between his boss and his neighbour, discreetly follows her until she stops in front of a carefully-maintained looking grave, and went to hide behind a nearby tree. Biru grew horrified once he overhears her talks to her son, who apparently died by suicide years ago. As the young man turned to leave now that he feels he has really overstepped the boundaries by overhearing what obviously means to be private, he accidentally stepped on a fallen branch, which creaks loudly, alerting his presence to the mourning woman nearby. Caught red-handed that he is stalking her, Biru becomes severely flustered and apologizes profusely for his deed, stating that his action is unacceptable and that he only follows her since he is always left confused at the routine between her and his boss, Reno.

The tearful old woman, who is just surprised at his presence, laughs quietly and motions for him to sit beside her in front of the grave. As Biru did so, Mrs. Gemilang smiles softly and said that his action reminds her of her late son Aris, who always has large curiosity during his lifetime. She told him that Reno is his son's former classmate. While she is never involved in the severe bullying that apparently is the reason why Aris took his own life, Reno seems to feel guilty eversince because she didn't stand up for her son, and as such, always apologizes to her for the incident whenever the old woman went to her shop to buy flowers, eventhough Mrs. Gemilang herself never blames her for what happened. After she finished recounting the story, Biru holds her right hand and said that he is sorry for the incident, and that Aris must be a wonderful son. As they smiled at each other, the camera pans up to show that the sun starts to set in the horizon.

Damar denied that he has something to do with it but Ki Arsa Jaya refuse to believe it. He then end their relationship and leave Damar. Damar feels sad and devastated. He also can't go to the public as the fans has turn against him. He has been marked as 'the other woman'. Chandra Kinanti come to his place to comfort him. Kinanti is very close to him and Damar have consider her as his mother replacement after his mother death when he was still teenager. Kinanti try to persuade Damar to come back to the group and begin dance again. But Damar reluctant to do so. Kinanti doesn't force too much and ask him to come to the group whenever he's ready. Damar closed his place and live in fear as the anger mob sometimes raid his house. Mark the wall with harsh word and even throw rocks to the house sometimes. Once in a while, Kusuma Wijaya always come to his house. He is ordered by Kinanti to take care of Damar as he is still afraid to comes out of the house. Kusuma feels bad for Damar's condition.

One day Kinanti come to Damar's house. She ask him to come back to the group as his replacement got sick and unable to continue to performed. Damar wants to decline the offer but Kusuma reassured him. He then agreed to do it. His first time come back to the stage got a terrible result. He become stage fright when he step into the stage which makes the other dancers look at him in confused. Kusuma then try to comfort him and luckily Damar is manage to recover. The performance goes well although not his best performance. Over the time, Damar overcome his fright and able to perform greatly as if the case with Ki Arsa Jaya has never happen. He relieve that he has a friend like Kusuma Wijaya who is always there to help him. At this time someone is approaching him. His name is Gading Wedastra, a businessmen who owns several textile store. Their relationship become more and more closer each time. Damar is infatuated with him and he feels like the situation now is better then with Ki Arsa Jaya as Gading is a widower.

Gading then ask Damar to move in with him and he agree immediately. But this is when the thing goes down. Gading begin to control Damar's social life. He can't go anywhere without Gading knowing even to practice in the group. One day, Gading even ask him to stop dancing as he doesn't want any man look at him with lusty eyes. Damar declined his request but he is ended up beating him badly. Damar then makes an exception, he will stop performed but he can still teach them at the group. Gading agree with the condition. Kinanti feels odd with Damar request as she knows that Damar really loved dancing and performed, but she can't argue more. Damar begin his term as a dance teacher in the group and every new dancers are happy to be teach by him. But in the household, things are not getting better. Gading always find an excuse to blame Damar for something. And he is always beating him every time he blame Damar for something. Damar ended up wearing a closed clothes so no one see his wound. But Kusuma and Kinanti realize the oddity. Every time they ask Damar about it, he always tell them that everything is okay. The situation goes bad after Damar unable to come to the group to teach as he is being beaten badly and unable to move. But he just say that he caught a bad flu to Kinanti. After a week of his absence, Kusuma try to visit him but Gading doesn't give him permission to meet Damar. Kinanti and Kusuma then lost contact with Damar as his house phone is unreachable and Gading is always cast them away every time they come to visit. This makes them worry.

Kusuma with the help of the group members then try to infiltrate to Gading's house. He success to knockout Gading and find Damar lay helplessly in his bed. His condition is worse then the last time they met. Kusuma rush to the hospital so Damar can be save. The doctor says that Damar is badly injured and there are several old and new wound in his body. Damar is also malnourished. It seems that he is not eating much. His lower body is also injured because of a forced sex. Kusuma feels devastated after knowing the truth. He placed charges to Gading for what he have done. Kinanti feels relieve that Kusuma is always there to help Damar. Once she ask about Kusuma's feeling towards Damar. He say that they are just friend. Kinanti just smile knowing that Kusuma might hide his own feeling or maybe he is not realize it yet.

With Kusuma and Kinanti care, Damar gained his health and strength gradually. But there's a huge trauma there. Damar is reluctant to be touch by anyone. Every time Kusuma or Kinanti accidentally touched him, he pull himself. Kusuma also sometimes hear Damar crying in his sleep and even screaming loudly in his dream. This makes him feel so sad. Kinanti ask Kusuma to always look after Damar while she is busy with the group. One night, Damar screaming again in one of his bad dream which makes Kusuma who sleep in the coach alerted by it. He rush to the bed and hug him in reflect, try to comfort him. But the hugging give a bad response from Damar as he is punching and screaming more loudly to Kusuma, ask him to release him. At this time Kusuma realize that Gading have repeatedly rape Damar whether in his good or injured condition. Kusuma tear falls down as he hug him tightly. He bear the pain from Damar's punch and struggle in his arms. He just wants Damar to share the pain with him. Damar then fell asleep in exhaustion. Kusuma feels relieve and put him on the bed. Kusuma rush to the bathroom and cry badly as he understand the worst life that Damar face everyday in Gading's house.

The next morning, Kinanti come to visit and she see the change in both of them. She feel happy for it. In the end of her visit she say to Kusuma that she relieve Damar is in good hands now. Kusuma just smile clumsily. At night, Damar wake up screaming from another bad dream. Kusuma rush and hug him dearly. Damar try to release the hug as he still afraid to be touch by anyone. But Kusuma tighten his hug. Damar forcefully try to release the hug. He even scream for it but Kusuma stand still. He then whisper to Damar and say that he won't harmed him and he just wants him to share the pain with him. Damar break into tears. His body tremble. Kusuma hug him again tightly and then kiss him in the forehand. Damar now realize that the man in front of him is in love with him no matter how his condition now. Kusuma whisper that he will take care of Damar until the end of their day. Damar's hands trembled to reach Kusuma and hug him back.

Majid Widyatama is the one who Produced, Directed and Write the movie entitled Memilih. The movie revolves around Wijaya family who is in the brink of separation and how the son of the family, Ali deal with the situation.
Ali is a silent, sensitive young man from a middle-class family who has just graduated high school. While preparing for the upcoming college entrance examination, he mostly spends his days either by studying or hanging out with his close friend and crush from high school, Dinda. During one of their hang outs, Dinda reveals to him that she is dating a former classmate of theirs. Heartbroken, Ali cheerfully congratulates her despite feeling miserable inside.

His calm home life takes a turn when his working mother Nur suddenly accuses her husband, stay-at-home father Awang, for cheating. Nur, who has been frustated by the difficult financial situation her office is currently in and her husband's apparent disregard for the money she got by spending it on merchs, is "divinely inspired" to check on her husband's phone and found that he has been in constant communication with another woman. They begin to fight daily, until one day Nur expresses her wish for a divorce.

Ali, who still feels heartbroken after Dinda's revelation, began to isolate himself from his family, claiming that he needs to prepare for the examination. Deep down, however, Ali is still unable to believe that his caring, loving father might cheat, and can't help but think that maybe this is a misunderstanding on his mother's part, since Ali knows about the stress his mother has from her office condition as she frequently talks about it with him. With that in mind, Ali begins to think if it's better for him to investigate the matter alone in order to gain better understanding of the conflict. However, he then remembers that the examination is just a couple of weeks away and there are some materials that he needs to work on. Soon, Ali is conflicted between investigating it and focusing on his study. Deep down, Ali is also afraid that if he choose to investigate, it might involve him in the problem and as result, might worsen the situation between his mother and father.

In his confusion, Ali is thinking about asking for Dinda's opinion about the problem, hoping that since she comes from a broken home family, she would likely have better understanding from her experience and might gives him pointer about what he should do with the situation. However, he suddenly remembers that she is dating another person, thus makes him stopping short from asking her as he is afraid of disturbing his friend's budding relationship. His doubts about his mother, however, is gone once he accidentally overhears one of his parents' fights, where his father confirms that he is indeed, has a feeling for another woman, but insists that he doesn't want their marriage to be over. Overwhelmed with the revelation and the blooming feeling of betrayal in his mind, Ali watches helplessly as their parents continue to scream at each other, before finally his mother stomps out from the house to drive somewhere else. That night, when his mother still have yet to come back and isn't answering his calls, Ali decides to go out and look for her only to find his mother sitting alone in a park not far from their house, crying. Nur says that she wants to die, though Ali warns her to not do anything stupid before driving both of them home.

After that, with the situation at home keeps deteriorating and his mother often makes excuses to go home from work late, Ali begins to feel exhausted. He already doesn't get many sleep with his parents' fighting through the night, and he also begins to feel anxious about his chance of getting accepted into the university, especially since the stress begin to affect his study. The night before the examination, Nur comes to his room and asks Ali if it's okay for him to live without his father. As his stress level peaked, the memory of his mother saying that she wanted to die starts to reverberate in his mind, shaking him up. Overcame with emotion, Ali screams at his mother to leave him alone. Shocked, Nur silently leaves the room while Awang, who hears the scream comes to his son's room and scolds Ali for yelling at his mother, reminding him that Nur is having a hard time right now. Feeling extremely guilty, and still pissed at his father, Ali tunes his father out by daydreaming. Before he walks out from Ali's room, Awang stops at the doorway and apologizes to Ali for everything, saying that he will always love him no matter what happens.

The next day, Nur drives Ali to the examination place, a campus where Ali used to win a photography competition. As Nur remarks on this, Ali was reminded of their exchange the night before. Looking down, he apologizes to his mother, saying that he is not ready to deal with his mother's question the previous night and to please give him time to think about it after the examination is done. Smiling tearfully, Nur parks her car at the nearby parking lot and says that she has always forgives him, and that she is also sorry for all the time she and his father might have intrude his studying by their fighting. Ali says that it doesn't really matter before asking his mother to pray so he might pass the exam, and then walks out from the car to enter the building. As he looks for his examination room, he passed by Dinda, who is sitting alone by herself in front of her room. Dinda cheerfully asked him how he is doing, before grimaces as she gets a good look at his expression and stating with worry that he doesn't look okay. Smiling tiredly, Ali begins to have flashbacks about everything that happened to him before and sighing, saying that it has been an eventful month. Dinda then stands up from the bench and turns to stand beside him, saying that although she has a boyfriend now, she will always be available if he needs to talk about his problems, especially since for a long time of their friendship, she recognizes Ali as somebody who tends to bury their problem deep and thus needs coaxing to open themselves up to the others. Ali, who starts to get overwhelmed with emotion from hearing his friend's words, tears up before smiling at her, thanking Dinda for offering her time and promises to tell her everything after their examination is over, before he went back to walk into his room, that is located nearby. From behind his back, Dinda smiles and says that she will be waiting and for Ali to do his best.

During the exam, as Ali began to stumble upon the questions on the paper, he is reminded of everything that happened to him before, and of his parents' and Dinda's words. Ali smiles and mutters that he has survived the whole ordeal and he won't let some questions prevent him from passing the important examination in his life right now, as he has promised to do his best. Ali then writes his answers and once the time is up, stands to turn his paper in and leave, never looking back into the room.

The scene then turns to a family court. Nur and Awang has filed for a divorce, and the judge makes their separation permanent after a proceeding. The judge then asked which parent Ali chooses to live with. Ali states that he has made a decision, but asks that the judge tell his parents to wait outside before he tells him. His decision is left unresolved.

Sebastian Gunawan

Music : Acwin Dwijendra
Lyrics : Dewi Miranti, Eka Bayu
Tune : Evermore - Josh Groban

Dalam seumur hidupku
In my whole life

Kuberikan tuk musik ku
I give it to my music

Jiwa dan raga ku pun saling menyatu
My body and soul are also one with each other

Dan mengalun syahdu
And sounded serene


Tak pernah akan kukira
I never will thought

Tiba datang nya cobaan
There comes a trial

Saat musik jiwa ku mungkin kan sirna
When the music of my soul may disappear

Yang buatku hampa
Which makes me feel empty


Dan ku coba tuk bertahan
And I try to survive

Melantunkan irama
Chanting a beat

Simfoni yang hampa tanpa jiwa
A symphony devoid of soul

Gerakkan nada nya
Move the tone

Dan masihkah kan ada
And will there still be

Harapan di akhir nya
Hope at the end

Lagu ku pun kan terdengar
My song will be heard

Walaupun hanya sesaat
Even if only for a moment


Ku harus bangkit berjuang
I have to get up to fight

Walau berat nya cobaan
Even though it's a tough trial

Lagu ku tetap kan selalu ada
My song is always there

Sbagai penyemangat
As encouragement


Dan kini kupersembahkan
And now I present it

Lantunan dari jiwa
Chant from the soul

Melodi yang syahdu mengalun merdu
The melody was melodious

Hangatkan hatimu
Warm your heart

Dan kini pada akhir nya
And now at the end

Yang bisa kuharapkan
All I can hope for

Lagu ku kan diterima
My song will be accepted

Dalam hati setiap insan
In every person's heart

Dan akan trus berkumandang
And it will continue to reverberate

Selalu, tuk slamanya
Always, forever

After the song is ended, the camera then shift to the right podium where Sintya Kemalasari and Lukman Hadi are standing there.

Nada Cinta
Baladewa ft. Ayu Laksmi

Music & Lyric : Baladewa
Tune : Wagakki Band - Queen of the Night

Suaramu yang mengalun syahdu
Membawa untaian nada cinta
Alunan nya mendayu merayu
Membuat hatiku pun terpanah

Dan ku kini terpaku pada
Untaian nada kasih dan cinta
Tak pernah terbayang kan
Nada ini akan berakhir
Your voice is flowing serene
Carrying strands of love tones
The strains are very seductive
Make my heart burst

And I am now fixated on
The strands of love
Never would imagined
This tone will end

Naluri ku membawa ke dalam pusaran rindu
Yang tak pernah kan berujung
Ku menantikan hadirmu kembali
Ah….ke dalam hidup ku
Angan ku melayang ke alam yang teramat jauh
Yang tak pernah kan tersentuh
Ku mengharapkan engkau kan kembali
Menyambung nada ini
My instincts lead me to a vortex of longing
That will never ends
I look forward to welcoming you back
Ah…. Into my life
My thoughts drifted to a far away realm
Which will never be touched
I hope you will come back
To connect this tone

Sayup sayup suara mengalun
Mengingatkan pada nada cinta
Mengharapkan kembali bayangmu
Menyapa ku dengan senyum mesra

Dan ku kini diam membisu
Terbuai angan yang tiada pasti
Akankah nada ini kan kembali
Untuk berlagu
The sound was faint
Reminiscent of the tone of love
Expecting your shadow back
Greet me with an affectionate smile

And I am now silent
Lulled with uncertain dreams
Will this tone come back
To play around

Naluri ku membawa ke dalam pusaran rindu
Yang tak pernah kan berujung
Ku menantikan hadirmu kembali
Ah….ke dalam hidup ku
Angan ku melayang ke alam yang teramat jauh
Yang tak pernah kan tersentuh
Ku mengharapkan engkau kan kembali
Menyambung nada ini
My instincts lead me to a vortex of longing
That will never ends
I look forward to welcoming you back
Ah…. Into my life
My thoughts drifted to a far away realm
Which will never be touched
I hope you will come back
To connect this tone

Naluri ku membawa ke dalam pusaran rindu
Yang tak pernah kan berujung
Ku menantikan hadirmu kembali
Ah….ke dalam hidup ku

Naluri ku membawa ke dalam pusaran rindu
Yang tak pernah kan berujung
Ku menantikan hadirmu kembali
Ah….ke dalam hidup ku
Angan ku melayang ke alam yang teramat jauh
Yang tak pernah kan tersentuh
Ku mengharapkan engkau kan kembali
Menyambung nada ini
My instincts lead me to a vortex of longing
That will never ends
I look forward to welcoming you back
Ah…. Into my life

My instincts lead me to a vortex of longing
That will never ends
I look forward to welcoming you back
Ah…. Into my life
My thoughts drifted to a far away realm
Which will never be touched
I hope you will come back
To connect this tone
