Indonesia won Democracy Video Challenge

As I believe Indonesia has many smart, creative, and talented young people in many areas. They won many international competitons including in science and arts. Now I must be proud of Adhyatmika who has won Democracy Video Challenge.

Who is Adhyatmika? He was born in Jakarta, Adhyatmika is a graduate of the Puttnam School of Film, Lasalle College of The Arts in Singapore. He developed a passion for filmmaking while still in high school and his work has since been featured at international film festivals.

He sees film as a medium that transcends geography, race and age. Intrigued by the Democracy Video Challenge topic, he said democracy is a subjective term that is not easily defined. He “played around” with the idea and “created a rather surreal satirical comedy about democratic life in Indonesia. "Democracy is not a thing,” he said, “it’s a process.”

As a first winner, he with other five other winners will be invited to Washington D.C., Hollywood dan New York City in September.

Below I attach Press Release of 2010 winners.

Congratulations to Adyatmika!!! You rock, man!!!
