On the occasion, “King of Krakatoa”, “Call from Majestic Bird”, “Dari Para Leluhur”, “Penjaga Hutan Bumi Jargaria”, and “Harapan” were screened on the first day, divided into two sessions starting at 18.30 PM. The opening of each session were the songs titled “Bumi Bukan Hanya Hari Ini” and “Siapa Lagi Kalau Bukan Kita”, reflecting current conditions of the environment.

While representing Rekam Nusantara Foundation, Een emphasized the importance of being aware that this country is rich with its natural resources, cultures and local wisdom. This, however, has to be taken into account by multi-stakeholders, notably the government, which has the authority and mandate to regulate area management. It is time for us to move forward, create synergy, and certainly believe that we deserve to be master of our own land.
