From Indonesia's leading director Garin Nugroho, OPERA JAWA is set against a backdrop of religious and political turmoil. The story, updated from southeast Asia's classic The Ramayana, concerns the violent emotions aroused when a potter's wife Sinta (Artika Sari Devi) attracts the unwelcome attentions of Ludiro (Eko Supriyanto), a ruthless and powerful merchant.
Garin Nugroho blends traditional and modern elements throughout and the film is set to a vibrant soundtrack from Rahayu Supanggah.
