Over the years I’ve been in touch with a punks in Indonesia, which is reportedly very robust. And why not, it has all the ingredients I’ve seen in other 3rd world countries I’ve visited, like a severe problem with poverty, corrupt government officials and an angry/fed up group among the populace looking for alternative lifestyle.
A friend of mine from the U.S. that I met in Colombia last year forwarded this link to me about a documentary being produced about Indonesian punk band in Jakarta called “Marjinal”. From the looks of the trailer, it looks like it could be pretty cool. they are using Kickstarter to raise some funds and since it seems like a worthwhile project I thought I’d give them a little exposure here and see if we can help them achieve their goal somehow. To help or for more information give them a visit HERE.
