Every day 10-year old Tantri loses herself in an imaginary world, the only place she can be  with her twin  brother. This cinematic poem from Indonesia is one of the most beautiful testaments to childhood as it depicts a young girl's journey through sadness, rage and finally acceptance of loss. Nominated in the Generation section of the Berlin Film Festival. 


INDONESIA, NETHERLANDS, AUSTRALIA, QATAR | 2017 | COLOR | DCP | 86' | INDONESIAN

Right out of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s mystagogic universe, Andini’s second feature follows ten-year-old Tantri’s painful journey to the acceptance of her twin brother’s imminent loss, who is bedridden in a hospital in the provinces of Indonesia. When night falls,Tantri sinks into a dream world made of fragments of reality, only to find her brother healthy and willing to accompany her in games, songs and traditional ritual dances.

Lyrical, plain and uniquely moving, «Seen and Unseen» is inspired by Balinese culture and employs both realism and fantasy to depict what happens in the subconscious of a little girl who tries to hinder the inevitable. Κ.Τh.
