Battle of Surabaya

November 3rd 12:30, Theater 3
November 6th 10:00, Theater 3

This is the beginning of a new wave of animation from Southeast Asia. The historical facts of the Battle of Surabaya are mixed with fiction in this anime-style transformation. With an analysis by Indonesian curator Rizki Lazuardi, the festival premieres this controversial film in Japan.


After the bombing of Hiroshima by the Allies, the Pacific War ended. The surrender of Japan ignited Indonesia’s independence but the Dutch army never permitted. Under this circumstance, thirteen years shoe polisher Musa and his friend Yumna, of Japanese origin, are trapped in the battles of Surabaya, which was important for the history of Indonesia. This story is an adaptation of the events of 10 November 1945 Surabaya. In addition to the real figures, there is a fictional character that is deliberately designed to reinforce the message. Message about the spirit of war, patriotism, and peace. BATTLE OF SURABAYA – There is no glory in war!
