Rimpang’s Stories: Arif Setiawan

When we were hit by the Covid-19 in the month of Ramadan, my friends and I initiated to create a drama series in a local language, which was started from a mere friendship networking that now became a collective. We hope that it can be an option for entertainment during self- quarantine.

Ensaid Panjang

In Ensaid Panjang, there are 28 rooms which means 28 houses. The mothers weave from noon to late afternoon. We stayed in a special room for guests. Night falls and we all gather to listen to bekana (‘fairy tales’) from one of the grandmothers who are also trusted to guard the stairs of women and bedudu (‘speak with chants’), such as mattedze in Mandar.
