Film screening collective Sewon Screening will organise two film-screening programs at Cemeti. Taking Cemeti’s 30-year history as a starting point, they have selected two sets of films.  Sewon Screening is particularly interested in Cemeti’s function as an alternative space for artists to explore socio-political issues through art. The four films in the first program are set in particular private spaces (bedroom, bathroom, living room) and provide a backdrop to discuss issues relating to living conditions at specific times or during particular events. The films in the second program address how film as a medium can offer space for artists to express social, political and economic issues when there is limited freedom.

This event is part of the exhibition Ruang Politik Pertama Bernama Rumah [“The First Political Space Called Home”], a project initiated by artist Dito Yuwono for which he has invited five Yogyakarta based collectives to collaborate, namely Barasub, Laras, RAR Editions, Sewon Screening and Studio Batu. This exhibition is part of Cemeti’s Maintenance Works program (January 2017-June 2018).


Sewon Screening is a yearly film festival founded in 2015 by the Association of Television and Film Students of ISI, the art academy in Yogyakarta. Since the start, the festival has the aim to create a “fresh wind”, offering a screening program that is new and refreshing and that shows changes within the domain of film, both on technical, aesthetic, and other levels, in the hope that the films can provide a useful learning experience for the audience.
