A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
Dive into the natural beauties of Bali. These beaches are perfect for surfing, for relaxing, for forest hikes, and for a favorite local dish called “Babi Guling”—crispy suckling pig. Bali is renowned for its rich artistry of shadow puppet theater and gamelan—but thanks to a new generation of creators, the idea of art here is changing. In this film, we visit colorful ancient temples that stand alongside contemporary art galleries, which are a burgeoning magnet for Balinese young society.
