KALPANA Uday SHANKAR 1948 - 02:35

The film was advertised as "the first Indian all-dance picture" and is the only film by internationally-renowned dancer Uday Shankar. The story line is the platform for dance, music and spectacle. A meek story writer approaches a formula-film producer with his script, but he's brusquely turned down at the end. The story he narrates is the film Kalpana.


LEWAT DJAM MALAM Usmar ISMAIL 1954 - 01:41

The film, written by the poet Asrul Sani and directed by Usmair Ismail, is widely regarded as a classic of Indonesian cinema. The film is a thriller set in the months following Indonesia’s independence. It follows Iskandar, a medical student and war veteran, who finds himself disillusioned with civilian life in the post-war era and feels betrayed by the corruption and mismanaged leadership around him. Eventually Iskandar finds himself on the run from the authorities in a city that, after the revolution, is still under the curfew.
