The Year of Living Vicariously
Amir Muhammad, 2005, 63 min

"Those looking for comedy in the Muslim world are hereby directed to the trenchant cine-essays of Malaysia?s Amir Muhammad. Shot against the backdrop of Indonesia?s first direct elections, on the Jakarta set of a student-activist biopic, The Year of Living Vicariously?getting its U.S. premiere here?is an essay on rebellion and nationalism in the guise of a making-of doc. The implicit question, as suggested in the title: Why did their reform movement succeed and ours fail?" - Dennis Lim, Village Voice

Ticket Price - $6
